The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

I MOVED to the Val­ley in 2010 to raise my fam­ily and bring a broader per­spec­tive to the role of Coun­cil­lor and Deputy Mayor.

I am more than just rates, roads and rub­bish.

I believe we need to im­prove our Der­went Val­ley brand through beau­ti­fi­ca­tion and cre­at­ing a co­he­sive look — giv­ing peo­ple a des­ti­na­tion rather than a way to some­where.

We need to look at sus­tain­able and cost neutral ways to han­dle waste man­age­ment in the Val­ley.

I am en­thu­si­as­tic, con­fi­dent and pro­gres­sive. I lis­ten and will be a voice of rea­son. A pub­lic ser­vant for 23 years with a de­gree in busi­ness, I come from a work­ing-class fam­ily and re­tain those val­ues, be­liev­ing in so­cial jus­tice and fair­ness for all. I value close-knit com­mu­ni­ties who care about each other.
