Putting Lincolnshire First
Lincolnshire Independents have more than 30 local councillors!
Find out more about your local councillor, their ethos and background and what drives them to represent you and Lincolnshire.
Marianne Overton is the Lincolnshire Independents National Group Leader.
Marianne is the elected Leader of over 2000 Independents and smaller parties nationally on the Local Government Association. As Vice Chairman of the LGA, Marianne brings the voices of Lincolnshire right into the heart of Westminster, speaking regularly and directly to government ministers and influential Lords, a third of whom are also Independent.
A better, Independent way forward
We care what happens locally.
We are your councillors who represent you.
We are councillors who are approachable, listening and working for you.
It’s high time to get national party politics out of local government.
Lincolnshire independents cooperate with good decision-making but have no time for forcing a national party line onto us here in Lincolnshire. These are frequently pushed on local representatives who have party allegiances, resulting in some very poor decisions in this county.
The Independent cause has very long roots, before parties were brought into local government. At the last election we had a good number of Independents standing across the county and came first or second in almost every seat where we stood. Now, more than ever, highly skilled and capable people are coming forward to genuinely and properly represent our residents.
