A Bit About Me

My Name is Elizabeth Lowe and I am standing to be your County Councillor in Birchwood. I would love to meet you, but due to COVID it’s unclear if we’re going to be able to talk on the doorstep safely before polls open in May, so I thought I’d give you a bit of an insight into who I am and what I stand for.

I moved to Lincoln 10 years ago and fell in love with the city. Lincoln is a unique place and deserves a strong voice on the County Council, but I feel that we are often overlooked by the County Council despite our historical importance and strong community ties.

Birchwood Deserves Better

Birchwood in particular is a vibrant and community focused area with beautiful green spaces. I want to work with community groups to protect this community spirit and our green spaces. I feel that Birchwood has been a hidden victim of the County Council’s failure to duel the A46 bypass, as so many people use Birchwood as a cut through when traffic on the bypass slows down. This is particularly harmful as high air pollution has been linked to childhood asthma and Birchwood is a hugely popular ward for people raising young families.

My Experience

My background is in trade union activism and I led a large trade union branch at our local hospital and care homes during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through this work I am used to supporting people through deeply uncertain times and responding to complex and fast changing information.

Some people reading this might not know what it means to be a trade union organiser, or how that would factor into the role of a councillor.  I view my role as a union organiser as empowering ordinary workers to have a say in their workplace, this is something that I aspire to bring to the role of County Councillor.  I will be your voice on issues important to you, and where there are different opinions amongst constituents I will strive to work with you to understand the best way forwards.

My pledges to you are as follows:

  1. To be YOUR voice on the County Council and welcome contributions from individual constituents and community groups.
  2. To form a partnership with the people providing services in Birchwood, whether they are directly employed by the council or community sector organisations commissioned through council contracts.
  3. To protect the services Birchwood constituents and their families rely on.
  4. Protect our green spaces and the quality of the air we breathe.
  5. To be available and open with you as my constituents.

I believe I can help Birchwood have a stronger voice on the County Council, grounded in the views and opinions of local residents and businesses.

Vote for me on the 6th May and Birchwood will have the voice it deserves in Lincolnshire.
