* SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY
We will support community organizations such as GL11 to help us through the recovery.
I chair the Stroud District Council Labour Group. I have lived in Cam and Dursley all my life. I worked at Listers as a maintenance fitter for 38 years, and senior shop steward for most of that time, helping many employees, especially over more difficult times.
I am now retired and spend a lot of time walking my dogs enjoying our beautiful countryside.
I have also served for eight years as a JP.
I’m relatively new to the Labour Party and I’ve never stood for councillor before. I’m eager to learn and am passionate about doing my part to make a difference in the upcoming years.
I joined the party in 2019 – the General Election was my first major political landmark and it was the first time I’d ever been truly 100% tuned in to politics. I have found an incredible community within the Labour Party, supportive and hopeful and full of fighting spirit.
I’m a feminist, an advocate for trans rights and the rights of everyone in the LGBTQ+ community. I believe we as people, whenever we find ourselves in places of relative privilege, should do our best to champion the fights of those whose voices go unheard or ignored.
I’ve lived in the Cam and Dursley area my whole life; I’ve grown up with the Dursley farmer’s market and the annual fireworks show and the pantomimes and musicals put on lovingly by the fabulous people at DODS.
I’ve watched Rednock go from facelift to facelift, watched the birth of the glass-fronted library and Sainsbury’s and the Pulse gym extension.
Our high street and our community are ever-evolving, and I want to be a part of the team that’ll help guide our community to be the best, happiest, inclusive and most tolerant version of itself possible.
“I grew up in Cam and lived in the Cam and Dursley area for most of my life, until moving to Nailsworth four years ago. I currently work for a charity that helps young people, the long-term unemployed, and others to make progress in learning and work.”
“I also have 12 years of experience working within the Special Educational Needs and Disability Service for two Local Authorities. This has given me a deep insight into the devastating impact that the Conservative Government’s funding cuts have had on the lives of some of the most vulnerable children, young people, and families in society and has been a driving force behind my decision to get involved in local politics.”
“I am a Town Councillor for Nailsworth Town and I’ve also put myself forward as a candidate to represent Nailsworth and Horsley Ward in the district council elections and Cam Valley Division in the county council elections. Local Government is incredibly important and with the likelihood of even more funding pressures, our communities need dedicated councillors who will speak up for them.”
“My priority as your County Councillor will be to work alongside our residents to campaign on the issues that matter the most to them and deliver positive change.”
