People often ask me why I wanted to become a councillor? And, my answer is simple. I want to make a difference to my local community, and the best way I can do that is to provide effective and efficient local public services - not only in my division of Wilford, but for the whole of the county.
I know Suffolk well - I’ve lived here for most of my life and had the privilege of being brought up here. I was first elected as a County Councillor in 2011 and have previously served as a Deputy Cabinet Member for Finance, and also for Public Protection.
