I was elected as a Labour Councillor for Holgate Ward in 2007. I have lived in York for over 20 years with my husband Ian.
I have 4 children and 5 grandchildren.
I have a wealth of front line working experience in the public, voluntary and private sectors and have been employed in factories, restaurants, and offices.
During my time as a Councillor, I have been a part of a very productive and dedicated team of three Labour Councillors for Holgate Ward and am proud of the things we have been able to achieve for local residents.
I have served as Chair, sit on several of the council committees and I am currently the Labour Spokesperson for Leisure Culture, Social Inclusion and Neighbourhood Management.
I am dedicated to Holgate residents and I wish to thank them for electing me in 2007 and I sincerely hope for the opportunity to continue to serve as one of their councillors.
