Lives on Boundary Road. Married with two sons. Taught at inner city comprehensives supporting pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

Captain of Ruddington Cricket Club. Passionate about keeping profit out of the NHS. Member of the QMC League of Friends.

Issues: 500 people on the Social Housing Register in Rushcliffe The Liberal candidates asked if anyone on the council knows if any people on the register could afford to part rent part buy on the new government schemes?

Before the Arena was opened the liberal councillors made it a precondition that  there should be a pelican crossing on Loughborough Road. Lib Dems were against the opening of a Sainsbury’s at the Melton Road garage.

The Lib Dems want economic subsidies to go to small and eco friendly firms

End Off Shore Tax Havens which the conservatives protect

and Trusts that enable the very rich to avoid paying tax on inheritance.
