Statement to voters
You deserve a strong voice representing your interests at Ashford Borough Council. Someone who listens to your issues - someone who will serve you well.
I offer experience as well as dedication: I was a district councillor for twelve years before moving to Ashford in 2016, so I know the way local government works. As a councillor in Ramsgate, I successfully campaigned to save our local post office and stopped the closure of the local recycling centre, as well as blocking back garden developments and inappropriate planning applications. I am keen to use my experience to serve Park Farm North.
I am a mother of three and have run my own businesses for over twenty years. I have worked in university innovation and enterprise centres, and have raised over a million pounds for good causes. I have worked with many disadvantaged groups and have led award winning projects helping young people into employment, small businesses, rural communities and vulnerable veterans.
I am ambitious for Ashford, and with your support, I will work to help shape this special town in the years to come, ensuring your priorities and concerns are represented, whilst backing new job opportunities and cultural facilities to ensure our community thrives.
