Statement to voters
“I have lived in Leigh since 1999. My daughters went to secondary school locally and still live nearby; I enjoy Southend’s libraries, parks and children’s centres with my young grandson. I worked in the NHS in London, then Essex, until 2003, when I trained as a primary school teacher – my last job before taking on family caring roles full-time was at Leigh North Street Primary School.
“I re-joined the Labour Party in 2015 in response to a marked decline in public services provided by our council and the NHS but also because of the adverse impact on local businesses. I am confident that I could, with colleague councillors, take vital steps to address the impact of more than eight years of austerity measures. Cuts to funding have had a negative effect on daily life in Leigh – people struggle to get what they need from education, health and the police; Leigh town is beset by businesses closing and anti-social behaviour. Finding an affordable home in the town is beyond most of our young people while planning decisions and parking problems affect us all.
“I am a school governor and I have volunteered with Southend Carers to support young adult carers to manage the transition between school/college and their next steps. I recruit, train and coordinate the volunteer team for Leigh Folk Festival.
“Choose me as your councillor for Leigh and I promise to represent you in working for the people of Leigh and of Southend”.
