I live in the ward and am available all year round to listen to, represent, and get things done for local people. 

I keep in touch with residents across Millfield and Thornholme with my regular ‘FOCUS’ community newsletter, and run campaigns to improve our area and our city. If there are any local issues you would like to discuss or if there is anything that I can help with please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

I lead the Liberal Democrat opposition on Sunderland Council, in which role I scrutinize the Council’s decisions and the way it spends our money.

As your City Councillor, the council’s data protection policy applies when I am carrying out council business. This explains your data protection rights and who to contact if you have a query about use of your data;
