Tudor ward candidate
I am a local government professional with over 30 years’ experience working for Councils across London.
I’m a passionate advocate for the role of a local Council and the huge impact they can make on residents’ lives. However, navigating services can sometimes be challenging, especially for our more vulnerable and elderly residents. This is something that drives me on to ensure services are accessible.
As the parent to a son with learning disabilities, I know how vital it is to support and safeguard the services that really matter.
I am a former Vice Chair of Governors for Latchmere School in Kingston and St. Phillips Special School in Chessington. My three children all went to Latchmere with my youngest is now at The Kingston Academy. This has given me an invaluable insight into the teaching profession and its huge contribution to the lives and aspirations of our children.
I have lived in the local area most of my life and in Tudor ward for over 20 years. You may have seen me on Latchmere Rec or in Richmond Park with either my kids or dog, or both. We are lucky to live in a safe, green and clean borough but there are still major challenges to ensure this continues, and I want to be part of this.
I decided to stand as a candidate for the Liberal Democrats as I like what they are doing for Kingston. I share their vision and ambition for a greener, safer and fairer place for all. It will not happen without strong and committed individuals and our decisions will impact on generations to come. They need to be the right ones for the people we represent and I feel I have much to contribute.
