I have lived in Reading all my life, from attending Blagdon nursery to the University. I am heavily involved in education being an Economics teacher at a local comprehensive School and have just stood down as Chair of Governors at The Ridgeway. In my spare time I follow Reading FC and have had a season ticket for many years.
Since being first elected in 2014 I have spoken to hundreds if not thousands of residents and helped resolve their issues. These have been anything from pot holes to school places. Continued Government cuts are making this more difficult but I am out listening to residents all year round and doing all I can.
After being re-elected in 2018 I was elected as the lead Cllr for Education. This is a huge challenge and privilege. I have been involved in education for over a decade as a teacher, Governor, examiner and Union rep so hope to bring a unique vision to the role.
Address: 99 Rodway Road, Reading, RG30 6EJ
