In the Outer West of Newcastle, Denton & Westerhope Ward comprises Chapel Grange, Hillhead Estate, West Denton, Westerhope Village and parts of East Denton.
The new ward is formed from Denton, Westerhope and Woolsington wards – across these wards, the Newcastle upon Tyne Community First Party candidates achieved more votes than Lib Dem, Conservative and Green Party candidates.
Jason Smith, Tracey Mitchell and Alan McKenna are the Newcastle upon Tyne Community First Party spokespeople for Denton and Westerhope. All three have a proven track record of action locally.
Jason Smith, a local family man, has strong local roots. His grandparents lived in Haughton Crescent so he has many happy childhood memories of the Burnside area and his first major job was in Presto at West Denton shops.
He is now a governor of a local school and a well known local campaigner in Denton and Westerhope.
Tracey Mitchell was brought up locally and now lives in Chapel House with her husband and two children.
Tracey is a support worker at a charitable organisation and is a responsible dog owner who loves to spend time outdoors, taking advantage of our green spaces.
Local family man Alan McKenna lives in West Denton and has had a long involvement with the local community and the Burnside Tenants and Residents Association.
