Sue Burfoot

Sue has been a District and Town Councillor in Matlock for over 17 years and Councillor for Matlock and Tansley since 2017, pushing the sitting Labour councillor into third place. She is a member of the Council's Health Scrutiny Committee.

A languages graduate, Sue worked in Learning Support at Highfields School for over 25 years. She and husband Martin have two grown-up daughters and have lived in Matlock for 44 years.

She is an active member of local groups such as the Matlock 'Station Adopter' group, Matlock in Bloom and one of our local GP Surgery's Patient Participation Panels. Sue has spent her 17 years as a councillor working with the local Liberal Democrat Focus Team, helping local people whenever she can and campaigning on many issues, such as highway safety, speeding and parking issues, road maintenance, including potholes and gully emptying, housing, planning, litter, waste, recycling and renewable energy, as well as other matters raised by individual residents.

Sue has never been 'lobby fodder' like some Conservative councillors and believes strongly in the Liberal Democrat values of creating a fairer, greener and more caring society for us all.

Sue has topped the poll in every election she has contested. Her dedication and commitment to serving the public is her sole motivation for being a councillor, in order to help improve the quality of life for Matlock and Tansley residents, as well as the wider community of the Dales and Derbyshire.
