Here I explain here about my background, experience and views.
Thank you so much everyone who voted for me in the General Election. We came a strong second place, overtook Labour as the second party in West Suffolk, increased our share of the vote from 17% to 23%, and with a swing against the Conservatives of 2%. We are now strong challengers in this seat for a future election.
In a time of austerity the Coalition Government is making many important decisions about the economy, education, crime, and health. It is more important than ever that local people have a champion who sticks up for them rather than someone who meekly does the bidding of Whitehall.
The impact of spending decisions will also depend on how these are translated by County and District Councils in Cambridgeshire. Here it is important that the views and circumstance of real people are listened to and taken into account.
A local woman, I have lived in East Anglia for 27 years, and as a County Councillor in Cambridgeshire I have a strong track record of sticking up for local people.
Many of my campaigns can be read on this site. Please contact me if you have any concerns you want me to take up on your behalf to deliver a fairer system that works locally for you.
