I have kept in contact with the residents of Broadwaters by producing a regular newsletter in conjunction with my Labour Council colleagues and have embraced social media such as Facebook and Twitter to reach a wider audience.
I have also engaged opinion by arranging well attended public meetings throughout the year. I have also continued to knock on doors of local residents and called into local businesses to gain a full understanding of the needs of the ward.
I serve as a Governor of Saint Ambrose Primary School and have recently joined the Governing body of St Oswald's school. I am also a member of a number of friends groups in the ward.
It has been a privilege to work with the many groups and agencies doing great work in and around the Broadwaters ward in these difficult times. All of whom continue to make a real difference to the environment and to people's lives in the area and mitigating the effects of cuts of both national and local government. There is a strong community spirit and a “can do” attitude in Broadwaters and the various groups are an example for others to follow. I hope during the past year I have played my part in helping to develop these projects and I am looking forward to the coming year when we can deliver further improvements against a backdrop of very difficult social and economic conditions.
During my working life, I work in a commercial environment. I believe this gives me an understanding to help deliver realistic targets and goals for the community. I have previous experience as a District Councillor and have served as a School Governor at a number of Schools.
