Derek Longhurst

As members are aware, ARAG stopped normal activity on the ARAG website in December 2014.

Information is still available on the site, which may occasionally be updated.

ARAG has been informed that Derek Longhurst, the Independent Town Councillor, intends to stand  as a Cheshire East Councillor in May 2015.

Councillor Longhurst has established his own website both to support his own activities and to provide regular up to date information to the Community, which you can view here.

ARAG is not a party political organisation but the ARAG executive unanimously gives its support to Cllr Longhurst’s campaign, having observed many examples and demonstrations of his commitment to the Community. Cllr Longhurst has also been central to the development of an inclusive culture in which the opinions of all residents are treated with respect and consideration. He has worked tirelessly through the process of planning appeals, making a very substantial input into the process. We believe that he is held in very high regard because of his ability to analyse and articulate a strong position for Alsager residents. He is a very committed individual who we would have no hesitation in recommending for office.

It is quite obvious that we need people of ability to deal with the challenges which Alsager faces now and in the near future. It is time for change. We need new ideas and vision not more of the same.

The ARAG membership list will not be disclosed to any another organisation, but if you are interested in receiving this information on a regular basis, you can register with Councillor Longhurst’s website here.
