Statement to voters
Born and raised in Ipswich, Suffolk, I have lived in Southend since 2009.
I believe that Southend is in desperate need of a Green revolution. Southend could very easily be transformed into a modern, renewable metropolis, and could lead by example as to how to operate a sustainable city of the future.
I have been a member of the local party since 2015, and have been campaigning on local green issues ever since.
I was elected onto the Committee in September 2017 as the Press Officer, Communications Officer, and Young Greens Officer, and I was recently elected to the National Green Party LGBTIQA+ Committee as a Non-Portfolio Officer.
I have been involved in Student Politics since 2014 when I was elected to the South Essex College Student Union as the first-ever Higher Education LGBT+ Officer.
In this role, I implemented wide-reaching Equality & Diversity policies, staff and student training schemes, and assisted in the complete overhaul of the Union’s constitution.
I also represented South Essex at the National Union of Students Conferences in 2015 and 2016.
I regularly attend Green Action Beach & Park Cleans and am often found at demonstrations around the county.
I am a strong and vocal supporter of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and I am one of the team responsible for the Estuary Fringe Festival, Southend's most-loved dysfunctional open-door Arts Festival.
I will continue to work in the interests of Students and LGBTIQA+ People, and I will continue to work incredibly hard in holding the Council to account!
