Labour candidate for the Thirsk ward.
Hello! My name is Phil Smith, and I am standing as your Labour candidate for the Thirsk ward. I have lived in Thirsk for 27 years. In 2015, I retired from teaching, having spent over 30 years as a college lecturer in Business and Finance. I believe in fairness, democracy and real choice at local elections, and so am proud to offer Thirsk voters the chance to vote Labour.
For too long, working people have been left with little or no choice of candidate to voice their interests and have become left behind and ignored. If elected, I will listen carefully to your concerns and aspirations and offer a progressive voice within the council. Above all, I will never forget that I am elected to serve your interests.
