Statement to voters

    I am a retired accountant and have lived in Hartfield for 33 years.

    Full statement

    Bringing up a family of two daughters, I am well aware of local issues; they are my issues too.

    Conservation
    One of my passions is conservation and preserving our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. I am a trustee of an organisation in Hartfield that gives scholarships to young people who want to work in conservation. It is very successful, working hand-in-hand with Southern Wildlife Trust.

    My priorities
    I am standing as your Conservative candidate because I support the traditional Conservative values of social justice, free enterprise and democracy.

    It is important to me to have an opportunity to make a difference locally to improve the lives of Hartfield Ward residents.

    Preserving our local communities and villages, whilst assisting them to keep up with modern technologies, is key for all our futures.

    Development
    Being mindful of the need for some local housing, I will ensure the use of brownfield sites wherever possible. Any development must include affordable properties so our younger generations have local places to live and work.

    Environment
    I will campaign to achieve carbon-zero by 2050 at the latest, and preferably much earlier.

    By tackling this problem head-on, we can reap the benefits of transition to a lower-carbon economy, rebuild greener, and protect our precious planet.

    Covid recovery
    The substantial grants given to businesses by Wealden District Council have been widely welcomed, and I will work to ensure they receive the support they need to carry on.

    Tribute to Chris Hardy
    Chris will be hard act to follow. He was a dedicated supporter of Hartfield and the surrounding area. He will be much missed by all those who worked with him over many years.

    Please take the time to support me with your vote on 2nd December, so I can then support you.
