Councillor - Clifton
I am proud to be elected as your Labour Councillor for Clifton. I live near the football ground and I am proud to call Clifton my home.
As an active member of our community, I am involved with resident groups, support local events and regularly attend coffee mornings.
The Labour movement has always been about community participation and this is at the heart of my politics. I am keen to listen to local people’s views and value the thoughts of all residents.
I was born in Wakefield and raised in the Hopetown area of the former mining town Normanton. I know how local and national policies can have an effect on ordinary people.
I started my working life at 16 and have a variety of different experiences, from working in shops, museums and the music industry. I have previously run a small business and continue to volunteer to help organise campaigns co-ordinated by the TUC.
High-quality public services and our NHS are incredibly important to me – I am so proud that the Labour Party created the NHS and I am determined to fight against the dismantling and privatisation of our health service - Only Labour can save the NHS.
I am a hard-working and passionate representative for our community, providing a strong voice for Clifton on York Council. In the Council Chamber, I speak out against austerity and contribute to every debate I can. I have proposed three motions that have been passed by Council; one to denounce the [Anti] Trade-Union Bill; one in favour of protecting local democratic procurement; and one to say that the Council should adopt the Unison Ethical Care Charter.
My committees include Economic Development and Transport policy; I also represent York on the North Yorkshire Fire Authority; and I attend the York Environment Forum.
When I get a chance, I enjoy watching the Minstermen at Bootham Crescent, playing my guitar and tending to the back yard!
