The Community Action Party candidate for Salford Mayor Michael Moulding, if elected, will immediately review the cities association with the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities as an expensive tier of government we do not need nor do we want.
AGMA and its predecessor were responsible for trying to introduce a Congestion Charge on the city which the Community Action Party vociferously campaigned against with the defeat of Roger Jones in Irlam as a result, is currently looking into imposing a minimum pricing policy on alcohol in Greater Manchester and other ridiculous legislation that adds costs to Salford Families, motorists, businesses and Salford taxpayers.
Michael Moulding, Community Action Party candidate for Salford Mayor says "if elected we will immediately review our cities association with this Labour established tier of government that is just adding costs to Salford families, Salford taxpayers and Salford businesses." Mike continues "We will also seek AGMA's abolition altogether by persuading all other Greater Manchester Authorities that it is not needed."
Mike Moulding and the Community Action Party is becoming concerned at the growing power given to this unelected body while Mike Moulding believes in his fight for a Salford Mayor, other political parties like the English Democrats, Greens, Labour and the Lib Dems all want a Greater Manchester Authority to rule over Salford and its people.
The Community Action Party will also review the cities association with Manchester City Council where some back office services have already been amalgamated to save costs and growing concerns that a "super" council maybe created which has been dubbed "Salchester" by some.
Michael Moulding says "To be more efficient some services have already been amalgamated with Manchester City Council. These arrangements will be reviewed if I am elected to ensure there are no closet plans to amalgamate even more services where Salfordians will find it even more difficult to access Council services which they vitally need."
Mike explains "For example I will not tolerate a homeless Salfordian in the unfortunate circumstance they may end up say in Little Hulton having to walk to No 1 First St in Manchester to receive their statutory entitlements. If elected, Salford, its citizens, its taxpayers, and its jobs will stay in Salford!" END
