Magid Magid, Green Party councillor for Broomhill and Sharrow Vale in Sheffield, has been shortlisted for the Young Councillor of the Year award as part of the LGiU & CCLA C'llr Achievement Awards 2017.
Cllr Magid has been recognised for his outstanding and dedicated work in representing residents, and in particular his campaigning on issues and concerns facing young people across his ward and indeed the city. Cllr Magid was also made Deputy Lord Mayor of Sheffield this year.
"I'm honored and grateful to have been shortlisted for this award. It wouldn't have been possible without the support of my colleagues and the amazing members of my ward which I'm privileged to represent . It's now more important than ever for young people get involved in local politics and anything I can do to help and promote that, I will."
Sam Murray, Young Greens Co-Chair said:
“Magid has been an outstanding councillor for Sheffield holding the council to account and ensuring the young people of Sheffield have a strong voice who cares about their future and the future of the local environment. A well deserved nomination for an outstanding councillor.”
