I was elected as a Labour and Co-operative Party City Councillor in 2012 and I consider it an honour to serve the community in Catton Grove. I know the importance of good housing and community safety and our local Labour record of delivering practical changes and positive improvements is one to be proud of. These are really tough times for many in Catton Grove, but the Labour administration in City Hall has been successful in delivering benefits for residents like the very successful Switch and Save Scheme and new council houses. I am a long time supporter of credit unions and will continue to support them whenever possible. I will keep working with my fellow City Councillors Paul Kendrick and Mike Stonard to protect and serve this community all year round.
