Statement to voters

"I have lived in Canterbury all my life. I love where I live and that is why I am seeking your support to select me to represent, not just the residents in Northgate Ward, but all residents in the Canterbury District. Along with my fellow Councillor Alan Baldock, I have represented Northgate Ward for the past 3 years and I believe we work very well together speaking and fighting for all residents in the Northgate Ward.

I have been a Labour Party member for over 30 years and joined a trade union when I started work as a Health Care Worker over four decades ago. My trade union, Unison, gave me the confidence and the skills to become a strong Labour women’s activist. I first got elected in 1999 as a City Councillor, then in 2001, I was elected as a Kent County Councillor. In 2015, I was elected as a Councillor for Northgate Ward. Almost four years have passed so quickly since then, and there is still so much for me to achieve. That’s why I am asking you to re-select me as one of your Northgate prospective Councillors.

As well as serving on the council, I am a trustee of the Northgate Community Centre, Member of Shopmobility and Fairtrade Canterbury. I served as a school governor at Canterbury Academy for ten years up until 2015. I am a member of UNISON’s National Executive.

As a Labour member I believe that through our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone. I am proud to be part of this great socialist movement. We have a Labour MP now and it is time for Labour to take control of Canterbury City Council."
