Candidate - Hull Road
I am proud to have been the Councillor for Heslington since 2011, working to give something back to the area that has done so much for me, by tackling local problems with parking and housing, and bringing different groups of residents together. With the majority of Heslington moving into the new Hull Road ward, I am looking forward to continuing this work while tackling the deprivation in the ward and helping develop community facilities like Hull Road Park.
Citywide, I want to ensure all York residents have access to high-quality transport choices, and jobs that pay a decent wage and offer security. I have a particular interest in community groups, co-operatives and social enterprises and this is reflected in my professional life as an employee of Social Enterprise Yorkshire & Humber as well as currently being York's only Labour-Cooperative Councillor.
In my down-time, I will admit to being a bit of a sci-fi geek.
