I have been a member of the Labour Party for several years but the recent attacks and damage caused by this Tory led government prompted me to become even more involved and passionate about fighting back and supporting our community. I believe that jobs and homes are the two key issues facing the people of Norwich. It’s never been harder to find work. It’s never been tougher for people to find a decent home to live in. Labour-led Norwich City Council helped create hundreds of jobs last year. It is building council homes for the first time in more than 20 years. Labour will also keep cracking down on rogue landlords. I work as a journalist writing on energy saving and carbon reduction. The council’s recycling rates for household waste are among the best in the country. I want to help carry on that good work and it remains an honour to serve the people of University Ward.
