On Sunday 22 April, Councillor Mohammed Ilyas launched his re-election campaign in the Queens road neighbourhood centre in Park ward, Halifax.
A packed room listened intently to Councillor Ilyas outline what he has done for the community since he was elected. This included renovations to children's play areas to make them safer and changes to road-markings asked for by residents.
I spoke at the meeting asking those assembled to make sure that hard working Liberal Democrat councillors like Mohammed Ilyas are re-elected, so they can continue the good work they do for communities like Park ward.
Also speaking at the meeting was one of the newest Liberal Democrat Peers, Lord Qurban Hussain. Lord Hussain explained how many issues of importance to the audience including education, immigration and civil liberties were now being pushed forward and dealt with thanks to Liberal Democrats in government.
