Councillor for Micklegate

Pete Kilbane - Councillor for Micklegate

Pete was born in Liverpool but came to York to study in 1986, and having gained a degree in Politics he decided to stay in the city. A strong trade unionist, he was GMB Shop Steward at Nestle in the 1990, and later became a full time officer for the union. He is currently a member of both GMB and Unite, and has been a tutor for the TUC at the Northern College.

He has been active in the community, involved in projects including rescuing the Golden Ball public house in Bishophill as a community asset, establishing the South Bank Community Cinema, and helping YorSpace secure a development site for affordable housing in York.

“The vision and policies put forward by Labour can transform our communities and the life chances of the many. In standing as a candidate for Councillor I hope to play a small part in making that transformation a reality. With a lifetime of pro-social activity in the community, trade union movement and business, and having been a well-known face in the Ward for 25 years, I believe that I am well positioned to win a Micklegate seat for Labour”
