Name:  Cllr Steve McGinnity

Tel no:  0151 280 3404 / 07714249929



Experience: I have had six years previous experience in Derby Ward and during that time interacted with local community groups and served as a governor at Hillside High School.

I was active in doing weekly surgeries at Bootle library and also did a lot of outreach work as well as street surgeries.

I was also a member of overview and scrutiny committees, performance and corporate services, environmental and technical services and health at Sefton Council.  During that time I also particpated in a number of working groups such as parks and gardens whereby special visits were made during the winter months at night into Sefton parks which uncovered anti-cocial activity.

I've also been spokesman to cabinet member corporate services and am currently spoeksman on overview and scrutiny for performance and corporate services.

I have also campaigned throughout the North West for the Labour Party and attended the cenetial conference in 2006.


Personal statement: My priorities for Manor Ward are to enhance the security and lifestyle of the constituents of Manor Ward by interfacing with local community groups on a regular basis and providing access to myself via surgeries conducted in local community centres.

I feel that for some years there has been a distinct lack of comunication between elected members and a large part of Manor Ward, particuarly in the Thornton and DeVilliers areas and it is my intention to resolve this.

I intend to use my surgeries and area committee as platforms to raise relevant issues in the public domain and obtain action quickly to resolve such issues.
