Additional information

I have represented the residents of Goodshaw ward as a Labour Councillor since 1999.  The role involves representing all local residents, regardless of their political persuasion.  I particularly enjoy taking up individual queries, getting a positive result is probably the most rewarding aspect of the work.  

I live in Crawshawbooth with my partner Paul and Max our lovely Labrador dog.
