I'm a teacher of History and Economics. I've worked in both public and private sectors, including at Rugby School and in Inner London, as well as for short spells abroad. Education is my passion.
I want the best education and support for ALL our children and young adults, from nursery to college & university. I'll be fighting to defend Sure Start, mental health services for youngsters and public libraries; these are crucial to the ideal of education for all, and all of them are under threat.
I've also worked on the shop floor in transport, in the City of London as an accountant, and advising young adults as they developed their business plans for start-up enterprises. I am very aware of the economic climate facing our entrepreneurs.
Businesses are already under pressure - the empty premises in the town centre show how real this is for the retail sector, for example. The environment for small and independent concerns is even harder. With the uncertainties of Brexit ahead, businesses of every type will need a hefty dose of realism on the Council - which I intend to promote with all my power.
