I was elected as your County Councillor for the Nene Valley in May 2017.

I care very deeply about my residents and the businesses that operate in the Nene Valley. I believe in the mantra of "treating as you wish to be treated" and strive to gain your trust to deliver the best I can for you.

I am committed to helping the Country and the County live within its financial means, whilst looking after the most vulnerable in society. I am driven to ensure your money is spent effectively and efficiently....scrutinising every penny spent as if it was my own. This has never been more critical as NCC finds itself in such a perilous state.

I have previously worked as Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care for Northamptonshire County Council. I support a small charity "Pottersheart" Business coaching in the most rural of areas in Africa. I am a Justice of the Peace and a Chairman of Northampton Bench Criminal Court.

I previously chaired the performance appraisal cross party committee for the Chief Executive Officer at South Northamptonshire District Council and sat on the Northamptonshire Police and Crime Panel.

Prior to becoming a Councillor in 2015, I had considerable senior Business Managment experience in large private sector organisations both in the UK and internationally. I also my own small business and was a Non Executive Board Director with a major retailer for ten years. I have worked for 5 years voluntarily with the Hope Centre for the homeless in Northampton; setting up their Job Club and forming alliances with the Job Centre and other training bodies.

More recently I was a Non Executive Director with the Grand Union Housing Group of Companies. Exact details can be found on my facebook page and "Linkedin".

I welcome your queries, questions and enquiries no matter how small or minor they might seem.
