I'm here to help you
Bill Anderson Mijas
A Councillor in Opposition
Welcome! I am a Councillor with the Grupo Populares de Mijas headed by Angel Nozal. My background in the UK was in psychological services and as a policy advisor to the Scottish Parliament. I have lived in Spain for 20 years and worked as an English teacher, German teacher, and latterly teaching Business Communication at a private University in Marbella. I have published two novels, and a book reflecting on my first 18 months as a Councillor in Opposition. I write a monthly column for an English Language newspaper.
On this site you will be able to keep up to date with what is happening in Mijas.
In total the Grupo Populares have 9 Councillors in Mijas, and are all here to work on your behalf to improve our municipality and help you with your problems, as far as we can.

What do we do?
As opposition Councillors we have a limited ability to effect change, but where action is needed, we will try to make it happen.
Listen to the community
What frustrated many people is the feeling that they are not being listened to when they have a concern. We will listen and attempt to resolve your problems.
We get involved in what you are doing
It isn’t possible to attend every event happening in Mijas. An opposition Councillor’s salary doesn’t permit this. But we will always try to be where the people are.
We will look for solutions
Our ability to make changes from the opposition benches is limitied, but we will always take things forward on your behalf, or suggest a way you can do this for yourself.
“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.” ― Ernest Benn
