Parliamentary Candidate for Croydon South
Before I moved to the area in 2013 I lived in Epsom where I was a Borough Councillor for 8 years. Sitting on the Planning Committee I became a fierce opponent of terrible planning applications and refused many plans which were out of keeping and ruthlessly over-developing the plots. I worked across the committee with all parties as planning is about making a positive impact on our environment, and not party politics. I was proud to support the famous racing industry in the town and help save historical stables from office developers.
I'm an HR professional with experience of running my own business as well as being a director in a large local company. We must support businesses so they can continue to grow, providing jobs to people and helping to support our economy. The Brexit saga is killing investment, has made it harder for local businesses to plan and invest and is preventing talented people from working in the UK and boosting our economy.
We need to challenge the Tory government and their appalling record in office. My daughter has attended two local schools with excellent teachers but they are dealing with cuts in budgets and a staggering increase in unnecessary workload. With two disabled relatives I have first hand experience of the pain caused by the cuts to benefits and the indignity that is heaped upon disabled people. I want better for our community and I will continue to campaign hard for every resident to make sure their taxes are spent wisely and people who need it are looked after and supported.
I'm half-way through walking the North Downs Way and spend an inordinate amount of time retrieving my vinyl from my daughter's room.
