Liam was elected uncontested on the 9th May 2015 to the Overton and Five Crosses ward, Frodsham as a Conservative Town Councillor. Liam is an active campaigner for the Conservative party and thinks this is only right to stand as a Conservative candidate being a party member, but most importantly because he is proud to be and wants to be honest. By no means is Liam influenced by a party whip or encouraged to vote in a certain direction, Liam is an independent party member and councillor.
Liam Jones has lived in Frodsham since 1998, he went to Weavervale Primary School to then go on to Helsby High School in 2007-2012 and Helsby High Sixth form from 2012 to 2014; where he studied Engineering, ICT and Business. To then apply and obtain an apprenticeship at Heat-Trace Ltd, a Self-regulating cable manufacturer based in Helsby, doing CAD Engineering. “ I think an apprenticeship is the best route to go in suit for a career, as this is the best of both worlds; learning whilst earning, there is no better appreciation than experience and for me this is why I choose an apprenticeship other than university or a full time job.”
What got me into politics?
What initially got me interested in becoming a councillor was going to the council meetings and being interested in how solutions could be created to solve the problems, how the new homes bonus money could be spent, where I handed in some suggestions to a councillor at the time. But all the campaigning I was doing for the Conservative, door knocking and leaflet dropping with town/ borough councillors and the MP shows how close you can get to government, but not only that it is listening, talking and engaging with people on the door steps and in the high street discussing and sharing ideas on how best we could all shape this town that we live in, and that’s what’s great about being in this position.
