you looked me up on my alanprocter.com blog. Its quite likely that you found me by typing my name, Alan Leslie Procter and doing an internet search, having found my name on a postal vote ballot paper, UKIP? or Moortown.
Thanks for looking at my page, I have my roots in Moortown and Meanwood, where my father worked at the Rakusens family company making Matzo and digging the allotment. I always worked for the railways, either as in IT or as today, Chairman of Railways Pensioner meeting.
I was a Labour councillor, for some years for Cookridge, then got involved as a company director at Leeds co-operative and have always tried to help my community.
I have four grown up children and at least three grandchildren, and they all are lucky to have jobs and a family. I am happily divorced and my lady friend Jenny keeps me happy.
I met Jenny in Moortown Club, but its over the ring road, not in Moortown Ward
Basic issues in Moortown, as I see it is that there are three Labour councillors, but they don’t seem to have enough contact with the community. We need regular councillor surgeries.
A few issues have got out of hand locally, like the Moortown School Field fiasco, car parking on pavements, at bus stops and all the usual things, like the Lingfield pub over the ring road. Merger with Cookridge Fire Station, and the strange fact that LS17 has more consumer debt than anywhere else in England, Foodbank worries?
I believe that if elected I could generate better community leadership in Moortown, try to get our diverse community together. Have weekly councillor surgeries for residents.
As I am retired, I have the time to help the Moortown family as a councillor. Got experience of living in all age groups. My main committment now is to the NHS, where I do some voluntary work as a member of the Council of Governors at the Partnership Trust.
This blog is aimed at postal voters who might have looked me up today, please read all the election papers before you vote and support my campaign to be a councillor for Moortown !
