Statement to voters
I was born and raised in Oxford, and went to Durham University where I read Chemistry and gained a PhD in Computational Chemistry. It was at Durham that I met my partner, Eleanor. I moved to the village of Middleton Cheney with Eleanor in 2009 and we live there with our two children and my mother. Eleanor grew up in Chacombe, where her parents still live.
I joined the Liberal Democrats in June 2016, and I'm a newcomer to local politics. My decision to join the Lib Dems and to stand for election to Northamptonshire County Council both stem from the European Union membership referendum. The referendum result made me realise that our current economic model is not working for many people.
Leaving the EU will not be a silver bullet that fixes our economic problems, and I see no likelihood that central government will make the changes that are needed. Local, community politics is where we can start the work of ensuring that investment creates good quality jobs while protecting our environment.
