Section 2: Community Involvement
I am a member of the Overview& Scrutiny Committee, a member of the Audit Committee and former board member of Wyre Forest Community Housing. I have formed Stourport Community Group with organised litter picks and general tidying with the help of several volunteers. I'm also involved with Kidderminster & District RSPCA and The Emily Jordan Foundation (Charity for adults with learning disabilities).
Section 3: Assisting Constituents
I have been involved in helping constituents with various housing problems and ASB issues and many highway problems and I'm constantly working with County Councillors and officials regarding road repairs, resurfacing and parking restrictions. I take part in Walkabouts organised by Community Housing whenever I can. I never fail to address any problem bought to my notice and visit the person the same day or at very least within 2 days. I can be contacted by phone or email and quite often out and about in the ward or in town.
Section 4: Supplementary Information
My role as Mayor of Stourport (2016-2017) has taken a lot of my time covering over 160 mayoral engagements which resulted in my WFDC attendance record being lower than I would have liked.
