I am a city Councillor because I want to get things done for local people. I do my best to listen to local people’s concerns, stand up for them in the Council, and fight their corner in the Civic Centre.

I live in the ward, and I keep in touch with residents across Grindon, Thorney Close, Hastings Hill, North Farm, and Springwell with my regular ‘FOCUS’ community newsletter. I run campaigns to improve our area, and as an opposition councillor I stand up to the Council when residents feel it isn’t listening or is making bad decisions.

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 am available all year round at the end of the phone, by email or post, or I can meet you in person.
