Cllr Liz Yates was first elected to Nottinghamshire County Council in June 2009 to represent the Misterton division, succeeding long-serving Conservative county councillor Kenneth Bullivant. She was re-elected in May 2013 and is now the Conservative Group's lead spokesman on the Personnel Committee. She is also a Conservative representative on the Nottinghamshire & City of Nottingham Fire Authority.
Liz has lived in Babworth for more than 35 years, during which time she has served as a parish councillor for the village, a governor at Ranby C of E Primary School and a Bassetlaw District councillor for the Sutton ward.
Liz has a particular interest in the concerns of rural communities, such as access to services and the retention and expansion of local facilities. She attends as many parish council meetings as possible and keeps in close contact with local parish clerks, as well as assisting residents with their individual enquiries.
Liz holds County Council surgeries in various parts of her division and will advertise these locally. She is available to meet constituents at any convenient time at a suitable venue.
