I've had life-long links to Tunbridge Wells, and I moved from Norwich to Tunbridge Wells in the late 1990s.
I live and work locally, which means I'll be free to represent local residents at council meetings as well as doing case work.
I joined the Liberal Democrats seven years ago, as I wanted to get involved in politics in a meaningful way.
Since then, I've campaigned on a number of local issues, such as parking permits, and I've also run for office at Borough, County and Parliamentary level.
In 2015 I was the PPC for Bexhill and Battle.
In 2017, I was the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Tunbridge Wells. I came third with over 5500 votes, which was a 1,000 improvement on 2015’s result.
I was also part of the successful campaigns to rid Tunbridge Wells of the old cinema site, and also to keep Tunbridge Wells in the EU.
My wealth of experience demonstrates that I'm a capable candidate with a lot to give.
I will bring a fresh perspective to Tunbridge Wells, as I am truly focused on bringing more innovative ideas to the ward.
I have more than 1700 followers on Twitter, which shows that I have a certain level of influence. My political experiences have honed my interpersonal skills, and I pride myself on being able to adjust my style to my audience.
I'm an energetic, experienced and spirited candidate who's keen to make a difference.
