I have been a councillor on Gloucester City Council since May 2016. I was previously a councillor in the London Borough of Hackney for 11 years and during that time I spent two years as a member of the London Fire and Civil Defence Authority.
My Ward is Elmbridge.
I am a member of the Gloucestershire Gay and Lesbian Community Group. I am a supporter of Amnesty and help as a volunteer. I have been involved in equality and diversity issues over many years.
I like classical music and the arts.
I have worked in local government, the NHS and Transport for London. I have been a trade union representative and branch officer.
In the coming year I would like to play my part in bringing people together and helping to highlight all the positive aspects of this great city. I would like to see more done to help those who feel neglected and see no real future for themselves.
