Queen Edith’s Councillor George Pippas is again standing for the Liberal Democrats in this year’s Cambridge City Council election
George has worked on a range of issues, from road safety campaigns affecting hundreds of people to a large caseload of individual issues concerning housing and planning. But he is best known for his work on the Nightingale Avenue Recreation Ground, where he has fought hard for funding for a new pavilion and successfully seen in our trim trail, new play equipment, and an avenue of new trees, as well as improvements to drainage. Another of his campaigns has been to address the difficulties of Fendon Road for walking and cycling, and he is pleased that there are now pedestrian crossings at one end of the street, with improvements coming soon to the other.
George lives locally with his family and runs two guest houses, one in Rustat Road and another in Mowbray Road.
The election takes place on Thursday 2nd May.
If you are going to be away on 2nd May, you can vote by post or proxy. Postal votes are expected to go out this Thursday (18th April).
