I’m one of the three Labour Councillors for the Shard End Ward, which covers the neighbourhoods of Shard End, Tile Cross, Kitts Green, Lea Village and Glebe Farm.
It’s a real privilege to serve such a strong and vibrant local community. As a local Councillor, I’ve been working alongside residents on hard hitting campaigns to deal with local priorities, ranging from cracking down on anti-social behaviour to campaigning for improvements to public transport.
Getting more people involved in decision making and local action are real passions of mine, so I invest a lot of my time in attending community groups, public meetings or simply knocking on doors across the area and listening to residents’ views.
I’ve been a member of the City Council’s Cabinet, holding at various times the portfolios for community cohesion, adult social care, public health and housing. I currently chair the Council’s Health, Wellbeing and Environment Scrutiny Committee.
This website is designed to give an insight into the work I am doing as a Councillor, both in the Shard End Ward and on the City Council. Please do drop me a line to tell me what you think – I’m here to work for you!
