Phil ColePHIL COLE was elected as your Labour councillor for Edlington, Warmsworth and Conisbrough in May 2012.

Phil Cole, is best known as Caroline Flint's husband and office manager.

Phil has run Caroline's parliamentary constituency office for the past 15 years. He has been active in the Labour Party for over 30 years.  After working as a parliamentary researcher, he worked as a full time Labour organiser and then regional officer before becoming Head of Parliamentary Affairs for the RSPCA; and then worked for a successful public relations firm in London.

Phil lives in Sprotbrough village with Caroline and their RSPCA rescue dog, Joey. 

"I'm proud to be elected as councillor for Edlington, Warmsworth & Conisbrough.  I live nearby and working for Caroline and with our first rate councillors, I know the ward and many of the people activie in the community here. 

"I'm really proud of what Labour has achieved in this ward: our secondary school, the Sir Thomas Wharton Communuity College, and the Martinwells health centre and library, were built by Labour.  And Conisbrough has the new StoneCross Health Centre, thanks to Labour.  There is new housing underway because of Labour; and crime is down thanks to more police and better policing, with more powers.  We have to thank Caroline Flint and the Labour Government for that. Now I'm determined to stand up against the severe police cuts; and the closure of Warmsworth library by the Mayor and his Tory-led Cabinet.  Cutting so far and so fast is bad for our community and it's clear that the Mayor and his Cabinet won't stand up for local people.  I will."

Warmsworth Library update: Labour won a stay of execution for Doncaster's libraries.  The Mayor was forced to agree to keep them open for 12 months, to look at options. Warmsworth library finally lost its last staff member in March 2012 and a lease was agreed for it to be community run.  Labour councillors ensured that Doncaster council's budget includes a "Library contingency fund" to provide support workers should any community-led library fail.
