Wayne Alan DIXON

Social Democratic Party

39 Shelldrake Drive, Middleton, Leeds, LS10 3NB

I’m a family man, married with two young boys. I’ve lived in Middleton & Belle Isle all my life and still do, I love the area and I am passionate about improving it. I’ve been a member of Belle Isle WMC since age 18. I’m a volunteer, founder (2004) and now Secretary of Middleton Park FC where I currently coach several age groups from 18 months to 6 year old. I sit on the League council/ board of the West Yorkshire League, Leeds & District FA, South Leeds Life and Middleton Elderly Aid – all in my spare time.

We need better representation, people who live nearby, people that want to improve our area, our lives and our kids’ lives, local issues need tackling head on and the community to take a lead role and not career politicians. The current council has used the money left after the cuts recklessly and failed to protect the most vulnerable in the City; closing dementia care homes, but yet finding money for cultural events is not how money should be prioritised during austerity. Our area has the same issues it had in the 80’s/90’s, the same party has run our area since records began, time for change.
