Labour Chooses Natalie McCulloch MBA For Rufford

A high flier and life long West Lancashire resident, Natalie McCulloch IMG_0902 has been chosen by the Rufford Labour Party to stand in the upcoming West Lancashire Borough Council elections on 5th May.

Born and raised in West Lancashire, Natalie was educated at Cross Hall High School in Ormskirk and then Winstanley College. She went on to read Applied Social Science with Language Studies and Linguistics at York St John University, and recently completed a Master of Business Administration at the Open University whilst working full time.

Natalie wishes to use the skills and experience, knowledge, and time management developed during her life to give effective representation to the people of Rufford. Her day job also makes her a strong candidate as she is Vice President of Global Governance, Risk and Control at an international bank, whilst also serving as a Workplace Representative supporting over 2,000 employees, so is already experienced in picking up casework on behalf of others.

Natalie was also elected to the union’s national committee within the bank, responsible for negotiating the terms of any organisational-wide change on behalf of the UK bargaining group of 22,000 employees. With councils under increasing pressures financially and organisationally, she is in a strong position to get the best results for the people of Rufford, and West Lancashire as a whole.

Natalie said of her selection “I want to be a voice for Rufford as a rural community. Like many rural communities, especially in the North, Rufford is seeing increasing pressures on its environment. We are under threat from a Conservative Government that is de-regulating planning in favour of developers, putting green belt at risk. The government is also prioritising the interests of the fracking industry over local communities.

“The winter floods provided the most convincing evidence of the dangers of switching off our flood pumps. The National Tories must reverse this decision immediately. If elected as your councillor I would argue for the protection of local amenities in the face of government cuts to council budgets”.
