Lisa Smart * Building a brighter future for our area * Lisa is the candidate we need to win.

Full statement



A strong local champion Born and brought up in the North West, Lisa lives in Romiley with her partner Ed, who grew up in High Lane, and their rescue dog Bonnie.

Lisa cares deeply about Hazel Grove Constituency and its people, working as an active volunteer locally. Her voluntary roles include serving as a trustee for the New Horizons Canal Boat for disabled people and their carers in Marple, working as a volunteer for the Woodley & Romiley Towpath Team, and being a trustee of the Barrack Hill Education Trust.

A campaigner with track record Lisa is a very active and successful campaigner. Campaigns she has been at the heart of include securing Specialist Status for Stepping Hill Hospital, saving the Rose Hill to Manchester rail service, keeping the 380/381 bus running, and improving road safety across the borough with a campaign to get 20mph speed limits for residential roads and another seeking changes in the current rules for fixed speed cameras.

As an elected Councillor for Bredbury Green & Romiley, Lisa trains and mentors other councillors from around the country.

Other areas Lisa is campaigning hard on are the climate emergency and the need for us to protect green space, tackle air pollution and protect wildlife.

With the experience to get things done The former Chief Executive of an international education development charity, Lisa has been a school governor for more than 16 years. She is committed to making sure young people get the best start in life and their voices are heard. The first of her family to go to university, Lisa graduated from Durham University with a degree in Mathematics followed by an MBA from the London Business School.

Lisa is known locally and nationally for being gutsy and getting things done, whether it is through her voluntary roles, by working as a Director of the Joseph Rowntree Reform Trust or though convincing Council bosses to give Asset of Community Value status to protect local green space.

Never afraid to stand up for what is right and fair, Lisa also knows how to demand better use of government and local council money, with 12 years of experience looking after pension funds and charity investments for UK, US and Canadian clients.

The candidate to beat the Tories The next election in Hazel Grove constituency will be a closely fought contest between Lisa and the Conservative candidate. Only a 5% swing in votes is needed to take the seat off the Tories, making it one of the most marginal seats in the region.

Lisa cares for our communities in Hazel Grove constituency, and she is the best candidate to send the Conservatives Government a message.

Support Lisa now!

"It’s Lib Dem Lisa or the Conservatives – Labour have never done better than third place at general elections here!"
