Jeff Green

Councillor for West Kirby & Thurstaston Ward
Chairman of the Audit & Risk Management Committee

Jeff Green was first elected as a Ward Councillor in 1986, since when he has continued to serve the residents of West Kirby, Caldy, Grange, Newton and Thurstaston having been re-elected seven times.

In May 2010, Jeff was elected Leader of the Council and was the first Conservative Leader of Wirral Council for 24 years. As Leader, Jeff championed and introduced a number of innovative actions including Wirral’s Future ‘Be a Part of it’, a massive public consultation on the priorities for the future of Council services and expenditure in Wirral.

By listening to the public Council spending was reduced by £52 million, compulsory redundancies were avoided, Council Tax was frozen and the Council’s debts were reduced by £10 million.  As an opposition councillor, Jeff continues to pursue and support those policies which benefit all those who live and work in Wirral.

He is an active member of a number of Council committees and is particularly pleased to be a Board member of Magenta Living (formerly Wirral Partnership Homes).

Jeff has lived in Wirral all his life and is married to Carol, a local head teacher. They have two daughters, Emma and Megan, who attended West Kirby Grammar School.  Outside of politics, he supports Everton Football Club and enjoys watching cricket and playing a round of golf when commitments allow.
