He is known to many people for his quizzes and live music, and works with many young people as the Chair and Director of Whitworth Amateur Musical and Dramatic Society.

Accepting the Liberal Democrat nomination, Andy Kelly said "It has already been a chaotic and frenzied year in Rochdale politics with a by election in March, local & mayoral elections on May 2 and to cap it all a general election on 4th July. Many people are simply politically exhausted.

"Politics has become very divisive too. With a disastrous Conservative government nationally and a divided Labour party locally, and an MP who thrives on division and confusion. It is time to take stock of what really matters and offer the voting public honest, hard working and transparent representation. And that is what your local Liberal Democrat team aspire to do day in, day out.

"Where we are elected we keep in touch all year round through leaflets, emails and social media. We support community groups and events and generate campaigns based on what you tell us is important to you. We represent you at on council and at Pennines township and most importantly, we deliver on casework wherever we can, getting the people of Rochdale a fair deal from public services."

A vote for Cllr Andy Kelly is a vote to take that hard work to Westminster and to make sure that you start to be represented with a strong, sensible and supportive voice.

Cllr Andy Kelly was first elected to Council in 2010 as Councillor for Milnrow and Newhey and became Lib Dem Group leader in 2012. He has built a solid reputation for delivering on case work, advocating for local people, and challenging both Labour and the Conservatives on Rochdale Council. A qualified senior youth worker by trade, Andy Kelly currently works in public affairs for a national funder.
