About The Candidates

Mick O'Neill Duff

Before retiring I worked with adults who had learning disabilities, mental health issues, Asperger’s Syndrome, Downs Syndrome and children with Downs Syndrome for fourteen years. Before this I served in the Royal Navy and then transferring into the Army, I worked on the railways for 27 years and flour mills for 6 years.I am now retired, which gives me plenty of time to represent the people of Brislington East in their needs and try to improve the area they live in.

I have been a Councillor previously, for ten years so have an understanding the role on being a Councillor. My great goals whilst serving as a Councillor was to involve the local children to paint a mural on an under-path wall which beforehand was horrible graffiti sprayed on the walls. This really improved the under-path and to this date has not had any graffiti painted on the mural wall. Another major improvement I was part of was to convert a burnt out building into a Community Centre/youth club/hair dresser/area set aside for disabled children and babies. I am passionate about helping disabled people, elderly, youth, children and adults.

I shall work hard in Brislington East, alongisde Cllr Tony Carey for people with all abilities and be their voice so that you are all heard. Please give your support and vote me as your Local Liberal Democrat Councillor. Thank you,

Tony Carey

I am a born and bred Brislington boy and I am currently one of your two councillors where I have been representing your views and fighting for Brislington since I was elected.

After leaving the Royal Navy in 1989, I have worked continuously in the community, firstly in youth services, then as a school governor, now as your councillor.

You may have noticed that I have left the Conservative party. I did so because they weren’t willing to support me or my work for you in Brislington. For a while I worked for you as an Independent but I found that the Lib Dems wholeheartedly want to fight for a better Brislington. I know that they want to hold the mayor to account, scrap his costly office, saving millions that we can better invest in communities like St Anne’s, Brislington and Broomhill. So, I am asking you to vote for me and the Lib Dems to send the mayor a message. We need to tell him and the Labour party that they can’t continue to ignore Brislington and you.
