Statement to voters
I am retired Police Officer with two teenage children. I have experience of school governance and of local government. My main pastime is coaching swimming; I swim myself and occasionally cycle in order to keep fit. I have spent a lot of time studying with the Open University and have a degree in Maths and Science; I have also studied undergraduate courses in Philosophy and Economics. Apart from some service abroad, I have spent all my life living and working in Leicestershire.
I joined the Green Party four years ago as I became increasingly aware of the damage that was being done to the environment and the work that needed to be done to restore and preserve it. I have stood in local elections and was a candidate for the Charnwood constituency in the 2017 General Election. In particular I am working with a number of Green Party members and supporters locally in the Blaby area to try and promote the Green Party and the issues with climate change.
The current problems with Brexit mainly stem from a two party, interest backed and interest driven, adversarial system of politics which has now failed the people and the environment, along with our precious public services. I am not governed by a need for a career in politics and do not rely on any financial backers. I have signed up to the Green Party on account of its Environment First ethos. If elected I would be free to speak up for the interests of all those people I would represent.
Working hard for a better environment and for the health and well-being benefits the changes, that need to be made, would bring.
