The on-line diary of Richard Baum, Liberal Democrat Councillor for St Mary's ward in Bury. News from St Mary's Ward, Prestwich, Bury, the Liberal Democrats, and me!
I am a Liberal Democrat Councillor for St Mary's Ward in Prestwich. Prestwich is part of the Borough of Bury, north of Manchester. I have lived in Bury all of my life, and my family have lived in Prestwich since the 1950s. I have been a Councillor since May 2007. I work for Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council as a Performance Improvement Officer, and live in St Mary's with my girlfriend. I am 26 years old.
