Labour Candidate for Priory, Louise Dagnall 

Louise, 56, lives in Sale with her husband Simon, train driver, and dog Digger.

They have three grown-up children who each benefited from the fabulous community resources and excellent schools in Trafford.

Louise is an active member in the community and within the Trafford Labour Party.

She served as Broadheath Councillor from 2014 to 2017: a hard won victory in a previously Tory ‘safe-seat’ that saw the ward take another step forwards to becoming the all women, all Labour ward it has been since 2019.

During her term in office, Louise worked hard for local residents; resisting cuts to School Crossing Patrols; working with Friends of Parks groups and other community groups to ensure a decent level of service and a say on future developments in the local area.

She sat on Trafford Council’s Scrutiny Committee, during the time that the previous Tory administration favoured privatise services; feeding back on proposals and liaising with colleagues and trade unions to protect terms and conditions for workers and services for residents.

A retired teacher, Louise is a governor at Brooklands Primary and has a keen interest in acting as advocate for all children and especially those who are economically disadvantaged.

As a parent, teacher and now governor she sees promoting the mental health and well-being of children as a key driver in the education of successful, confident, and resourceful people.

Louise is looking forward to working with sitting councillors Barry Brotherton and Andrew Western having campaigned alongside them for many years.

As a councillor Louise is determined to step up to the challenges the borough faces and to ensure that the residents of Priory ward are heard and their needs met.

Louise is looking forward to meeting more residents, community groups and local business owners when it is safe and responsible to do so.
