Councillor for Hull Road
Aisling has lived in Hull Road ward since 2015 when she moved to York to study Social and Political Sciences, graduating in 2018. During the last 3 years she has worked in York’s hospitality industry, and she now works in the farming sector promoting sustainability and environmental good practice.
Aisling joined the Labour Party in 2013 at the age of 16 angry at the damage Conservative cuts were wreaking on local services, and is currently co-youth co-ordinator of York Labour Party, and the representative for young labour members in Yorkshire and the Humber on Labour’s National Policy Forum. She is an active local campaigner in York, having campaigned to Save Bootham Park Hospital, fought for better health care provision and accessibility for disabled people in Hull Road Ward, and worked to raise awareness of road safety with the Tang Hall and Heworth Road Safety Campaign.
“York needs a Labour council because our communities face so many challenges, from a crisis in health and social care, to stagnant wages that barely cover their rip-off rents. The city council is failing to meet the needs of York residents – it can’t even deliver basic services and our local infrastructure is practically falling apart. I would be proud to serve Hull Road ward as part of a Labour administration in the City that would put the needs of residents first, and put York back on track.”
