I was elected as a Ward Councillor for Silksworth in May 2006.  I have held several internal and external appointments since that date including Chairman of Sunderland South Area Committee, Chairman of Planning and Highways, Chairman of the Sunderland West Place Board and Vice Chairman of Sunderland West Area Committee. 

I am a Chartered Member of IOSH (Institute of Occupational Safety and Health), and I am a previous chairman and secretary of the Tyne and Wear Branch.
