Candidate for Luton North
I am a Lutonian - born at the Luton & Dunstable hospital - and have lived and worked in Luton for most of my life. I have chosen to make Luton my home because of the opportunities the town has given me, the multicultural community here, the public transport links to other towns, and the wide range of public services, entertainment and shops.
I am aware of the issues facing our town, and which areas need improving. I’m keen to improve outsiders’ perception of the town, and to continue to make it a town in which people are proud to live and work, and to attract new business to the town.
I was educated at Bushmead Junior School, Icknield High School, Luton Sixth Form College and Dunstable College before completing a degree in Product Design at the University of Bedfordshire (then called the University of Luton).
For the past seventeen years I have run a design and manufacturing company based in Luton and employing local people.
I have been a member of the Green Party for fifteen years, and held the position of local party treasurer for five years. If elected, I will do my very best to serve our local community and to implement Green policies on a local and national level.
The world is facing a climate crisis, and now - more than ever - we need Green voices in parliament.
