I have lived Fairestone ward for almost 25 years. I care about Glenfield and my neighbours. I have never been politically active before, but I want to stand up for Glenfield. It's time for a change.

I am a Chartered Accountant and have spent more than 20 years in the food and manufacturing industries, using my skills to help to deliver the services our customers need at the price they can afford to pay. I believe Blaby District council needs challenging, to deliver better services at a lower cost. I believe my skills and experience will allow me to deliver that challenge.

It is time for a new approach to running local government in Blaby, for everyone's voice to be heard in delivering local services. I care about Glenfield. Elect me as your councillor and help me make a difference.

Whether it is Brexit in Westminster, or local services in Blaby, Theresa's Tories are failing and its time for a change,
