I Like to introduce myself...


My name is Michael Haines...

I have lived in Oxford all my life. I am standing for election as an Independent candidate for the Marston and Old Marston ward.



I would like to thank all the people who have supported me over the years where I have stood in both City and County elections in Oxford as an Independent candidate. 

I was very proud to come second in this years Oxford City election where I polled 691 votes coming second to the Labour Candidate but beat the Liberal Democrats, Conservative and the Greens.


I will carry on fighting for the residents of Marston and other areas for which I will stand in future elections. At the moment I am fighting to get lights in Croft Road Recreation Ground which were promised in the Autumn or Winter of last year but we still have not got them, even though the fight to get them goes back to 2007.


Another issue I am fighting for is to keep the Post office within the Costcutter store in Old Marston Road. Tesco’s want to build an express store on the Friar Public House site on Old Marston Road but it would badly effect local businesses that are already there and their trade.


My votes have gone up at each election I have stood in so thank you to all the people who have voted for me. I will be standing in the future elections as an Independent candidate NOT with a party machine behind me.
