All about me
Since being elected to the City Council in 2004 I have attempted to meet the needs and aspirations of the local community. I’ve welcomed the opportunity to work with community groups and develop services in the Perry Barr area.
My main interests are education, environmental issues and community based issues.
I strongly believe that Councillors should be active in the local community and positively respond to the concerns of residents.
I also issue questionnaires on various subjects which allows me to build up a picture of resident’s views on local and sometimes national issues.
I have a good relationship with the police locally and I am pleased that crime levels are falling in Perry Barr. I am however not complacent and much more needs to be done to make our homes and streets safer.
I believe that as your Councillor I should be available to provide help and assistance on individual & community issues. If there is an issue that you would like me to take up on your behalf please do not hesitate to get in touch. I will try my very best to help.
It is quite common for me to be seen in the local area walking my two black greyhounds. When I’m recognised it is quite common for residents to come and talk to me (and the greyhounds). If you see me please come and have a chat including discussing any concerns that you may have regarding the local area and services provided by the council.
