Ann Marie is well known across Blackburn through her work as a carer. She really enjoys her work and specialises in providing care to elderly people suffering from dementia or mental health issues, allowing them to remain living in their own homes.
Dan is a local resident who is passionate about the need to rejuvenate Blackburn Central. He is fed up of littered streets and believes that Labour councillors do not care enough about the area and do not speak for the working class.
I was born on a council estate in Salford and attended the local comprehensive school. My parents always instilled in me a work ethic and I surprised both them and myself by becoming the first person in my family to go to university.
