Rabina Asghar (Spotland & Falinge Liberal Democrats)Lifelong Spotland resident Rabina Asghar selected to regain the historic Lib Dem seat.


The Liberal Democrats have chosen Rabina Asghar to stand at the local election in May. Rabina is an NHS interpreter currently working in COVID-19 wards across the North Care Alliance hospital's.


As a girl she helped out her father Ali Asghar the former Chairman of North West Lib Dems and started campaigning with the party in the 1990s.


She attended Oulder Hill school and sixth form before graduating at Manchester Metropolitan University.


"I'm very proud to be from Spotland and Falinge. From urban town centre to rural moorland, it's a unique place with a great mix of people. I want to represent this place and its people. It feels like the right to be standing as we start to recover from the pandemic, our sense community will become more important than ever."


Her three campaign priorities are:


Improving the local environment and infrastructure - including the restoration of the cobbles on Clement Royds Street.


Fighting to reduce anti-social behaviour in the ward - Rabina pledges to work closely with GMP and PCSOs in the ward to open up better lines of communication with local communities.


Campaigning for more youth service provision - young people have been hit hard by the pandemic and Rabina wants to help them get the support that they deserve.

Rabina believes that staying in contact with residents is essential. If elected she plans to hold regular, accessible surgeries, and be available via Facebook, but in the mean time her inbox is open to your questions: RabinaAsghar@rochdalelibdems.org.uk
