Having lived in Otley for 8 years, I am truly humbled to be running in the election for Leeds City Council representing the Otley and Yeadon ward, as well as Otley Town Council.
I have always worked in the public sector in and around Leeds: as a postman on leaving school, then in IT, town planning, and currently as a tax professional.
I’ve seen first-hand the erosion of public services through underfunding and back-door privatisation. It’s what led me to becoming an active trade unionist, acting as a local representative for the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS).
The experience gained from this has given me valuable skills in negotiating, campaigning, and representing others.
I would like to use this experience to bring people together, get Leeds City Council to listen to Otley and Yeadon residents, make sure they provide the services our area needs and challenge them when they don’t.
A lot of people I speak to tell me they think it’s time for a change – complacency can set in among councillors who have been in office a long time.
I will shake things up and get more action on the issues that matter to young people, families, older people and local businesses. I want to use my skills and experience in campaigning, negotiation and working alongside residents to ensure social justice is a reality. We can provide scrutiny from both inside and outside the council and hold the council to account. Together, we can make sure the council delivers the services our community needs, for the benefit of the many, not the few.
If you have any ideas about how to make Otley and Yeadon a better place to live, or if you’d like to support my campaign, please drop me an email at [email protected]
