Community Action Party gets Stronger in Wigan.

Published on by mikemouldingcommunity-action

The Deputy Leader of the Community Action Party, Michael Moulding now resides in the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, in Ashton-in-Makerfield.

Following the annual general meeting of the Community Action Party earlier in 2012, the party devised a political strategy which has resulted in the party regrouping and planning its campaigns for the coming months and years.

The Community Action Party has its origins and roots proudly set in Wigan and as a Wigan born and bred political organisation, officials have decided to concentrate its forthcoming efforts of regaining elected representatives, once again in Wigan.

The party in recent years expanded into other districts and cities, including the city of Salford, where Michael Moulding organised the party to campaign to change the system of local government in the city and was himself a Mayoral and local election candidate in Salford in 2012.

Following the local elections Michael Moulding decided himself that he wanted to help his party in its campaigns in Wigan and therefore Mr Moulding now lives in the town of Ashton-in-Makerfield.

Michael Moulding has considerable experience having been a community activist for over 20 years, is well known in the allotment & leisure gardener movement throughout the North-West, has been a city Councillor for 4 years in the late 1990's, has been employed by the Lancashire Constabulary, voluntary organisations and local government.

In 2012. Michael made a bold effort to end a Labour rule of 40 years in Salford, firstly by campaigning for and gaining a YES vote in a Mayoral referendum, which caused fury amongst the Labour elite, as Salford now has a Mayoral system of local government and Michael himself stood as a Mayoral candidate.

Michael Moulding says "I decided that I wanted to move to Ashton-in-Makerfield as it is a beautiful town in the heart of Lancashire. I am Lancastrian through and through and I am looking forward to getting involved within the community. Already, there are issues which I am aware of and I am looking forward to working extremely hard for the benefit of the community."

Peter Franzen, Leader of the Community Action Party says "I am absolutely delighted that Michael has decided to move to Wigan. He has enormous experience and his record on helping the most vulnerable in society is tremendous. He has spent over 20 years of his life in public service not only in his profession but makes himself available to anyone who needs his help, especially those in need at anytime and freely."

Hi Mike, a couple/few years ago we had some success in electing genuinely local councillors, unfortunately due to a split in the then Community Action Party the local vote has been similarly split
between two opposing groups - this will remain the case unfortunately unless this situation can be remedied - I argued this point with one or other prospective councillor on Gerard Street two years
ago who disagreed with me - lo and behold the results unfortunately confirmed my point of view. As long as there is more than one alternative to the main parties then it is pointless politics.
