Section 4: Assisting Constituents
I am always available to assist constituents and advertise my contact details (phone and email) on all distributed literature as well as make them available through Wyre Forest Conservative Association and of course via Wyre Forest District Council. I am available at all times to constituents and am happy to meet with residents whenever required.
Section 5: Supplementary Information
As I am retired, I am able to give as much time to council matters as required, which at times can be a great deal. My previous professional life gives me a wealth of knowledge and experience on which to draw and helps immensely with council matters.
Having a strong Conservative team including our MP Mark Garnier is a great asset in being able to pursue the issues which residents have right up to the national government level.
Residents frequently don't know which council is responsible for what, something that can be very confusing, even for councillors at times! It is therefore very helpful for residents that I am also a Stourport County Councillor and Stourport Town Councillor.
Lastly, I'm very proud to say that I have been a Cabinet Member in the previous administration and am a very active member of the current opposition.
