Michael Mullaney is an experienced campaigner in Hinckley and Bosworth who has fought alongside local residents on many campaigns in towns and villages across the area.
Amongst the campaigns he has been involved in are:
- Campaigning to save Hinckley’s Ambulance station when it was threatened with closure
- Successfully campaigned to save Desford Library when the Tory County Council threatened to close it
- Campaigned to keep Mount Road hospital in Hinckley open which is threatened with being closed
- Was involved in the successful campaign to save Barwell Sure Start Children’s Centre when the Tory County Council wanted to close it
- Campaigned with local Lib Dem councillors and residents to stop the proposed axeing of the 159 bus that serves many local villages including Newbold Verdon, Barlestone and Market Bosworth
- Has campaigned for more police on local streets including in our rural areas, following big cuts to Leicestershire police under the Tories
Michael has been elected as Borough and County Councillor for Hinckley. He has stood for Bosworth at the last three general elections. At the last general election he secured the highest number of votes of any Lib Dem candidate anywhere in the Midlands.
This May the Lib Dems won Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council. They won the popular vote with the Lib Dems getting 42%, Conservatives 36% and Labour trailing in with just 15%. It’s clear that the Lib Dems can elect an MP in Bosworth if enough Labour supporters, and Conservatives fed up with Boris Johnson’s reckless no deal Brexit plans, back hardworking local campaigner Michael Mullaney at the election.
