Jane Brophy will stand in Altrincham and Sale West following her Greater Manchester Mayoral run.
Jane is campaigning to maintain close links with the European Union and to halt a hard Brexit which will threaten local jobs, trade and businesses.
Recently off the Greater Manchester campaign trail, she feels invigorated and even more assured of her values and priorities. Jane was especially thrilled to receive her highest vote share in the mayoral results from Timperley Ward where she has represented for many years.
Jane is determined to deliver real change for local residents across Altrincham and Sale West. No matter where you're from, where you live, which school you went to, where you work, how much you earn, who you love or what you believe in— Jane believes we should all be able to step forward, together.
Jane is an environmental campaigner. She is passionate about protecting our local green spaces, greenbelt and against fracking. She has a record of campaigning on climate change, renewable energy and to reduce air pollution. Jane's home was the first in Greater Manchester to have a wind turbine installed on the roof.
As a mother with a disabled son, Jane has campaigned for increased awareness of mental health and to help people with learning disabilities. She has worked for the NHS all her professional life and is passionate about improving our health and care services.
Jane believes public transport should be accessible for everyone. She ran a ‘Pavements for People’ campaign ensuring that blind and partially sighted people could use pavements safely in her area.
Jane has a record of speaking up for local residents in Altrincham and Sale as an elected Councillor for Timperley ward, in Trafford, Greater Manchester, for 17 years.
