Tom is standing in his home ward of Rock Ferry as a Liberal Democrat because he thinks Wirral has the potential to be better. Underfunding has let our communities struggle but investment and regeneration means Wirral's best days could lay ahead as shown by the plans for Byrne Avenue Baths and Rock Ferry Waterfront. As a Liberal Democrat Councillor, Tom believes he can support residents of Rock Ferry in their community work and fight to ensure that development serves to support all Wirralians and protect what makes our home special.
