Biography:

While I had four very enjoyable years representing the people of St. Chad’s, my main base for politics in Sunderland has always been St Michael’s ward, where I have lived for over 60 years and been a Councillor since 2014.

Currently I am a member of the Economic Prosperity Scrutiny Committee, Planning and Highways (East),  plus I hold the post of vice-Chair of the Council’s East Area Committee. I also serve as a trustee of the George Hudson Charity and the Sunderland Orphanage and Educational Foundation

Housing has always been a major interest as I worked in that profession for over 40 years.

Away from local politics my main hobby is football, having actively supported Sunderland since the 1959/60 season and travelled throughout Scotland and Europe to watch matches. In addition I am a member of the Sunderland Old Township Heritage Society.

next ward Surgery: Thursday May 26th between 4 and 5pm at St Michael’s Community Centre, Stannington Grove
