Councillor Mitchell is the OWL Councillor for Knowlsey Ward.
Kate Mitchell was an active member of an Ormskirk resident group before being elected as a councillor in 2019. She regularly despairs at the amount of rubbish that accumulates in our lovely town. Because of this frustration Kate has been one of the driving forces in the regular litter picks that have been arranged by Our West Lancashire. Kate can be seen out in force with a collection of volunteers helping to pick up the rubbish the alleys and pathways of Ormskirk.
Kate lives in Ormskirk and has watched over the years as party politics has dominated the local scene. She wants to see your concerns placed front and centre in council matters. Only then can the best results for residents be achieved.
Kate won her seat in 2019, unseating the longstanding Councillor in that seat.
Away from local politics, Kate’s passionate about animal welfare. When she’s not out campaigning with OWL, picking litter, or greening her fingers at the OWL planter on Burscough Street, you’ll see her out with her two dogs. She lives with her rescue dogs, Coral and Neesa, former racing greyhounds. If you see her out walking them why not pop over and have a chat about the issues of the day in Ormskirk?
