Personal Statement:

“Passionate about Dunstable, ready to listen, deliver and serve you”

I have lived in Dunstable West ward for over 14 years, and I am passionate about our town and working on local issues that matter to you most. I am committed to ensuring our residents receive the best value for money services and facilities available from the town council, making our area a great place to live and work in and enhancing all our lives in the process.

I have a keen interest in the history of our town which I am very proud of and a strong emphasis on community spirit, especially in supporting the wonderful events that are put on each year which are well attended, thoroughly enjoyed, and have such a positive impact on all our residents.

I am very enthusiastic to engage in our residents, to listen to your opinions and develop our town through community collaboration. Whilst I can’t promise to fix everything, I can promise to be available to you, to listen to you, to serve you and do my best to get things done about matters that concern you the most.

Let’s all work together to make a difference, be progressive and have a town and community that works for you that we can all be proud of. Thank-you.
