Standing for election to Bracknell Town (Wildridings) Councils.
I have enjoyed living in Bracknell since 1986 and in Wildridings since 2016. The open spaces, parks and playgrounds have been very important. First as a destination with my children when small, playing on the swings, then as teenagers as the skate parks arrived and now as a Bracknell Forest Runner and still as a parent of an energetic teenager the open spaces are still just as important.
My role as a stay at home parent has me out and about in Wildridings on a daily basis where I see the good of the area and where improvements may be needed.
My role as a Radio Engineer Manager with Telefonica and a Prospect Principal Officer have given me skills that will help me negotiate effectively on behalf of Wildridings.
Standing for election to Bracknell Forest Borough Council.
I have lived in Bracknell all of my life. I am very proud of the people of Bracknell. 30 years ago, Bracknell changed from a defence manufacturing base into an important high tech member of the M4 corridor it is today. It is a good place to live but I know it could be better. One of my personal issues is the lack of social housing in the town. The high property prices and the record high private rents are a real problem for local young people to get affordable housing. I want Bracknell to be a place where everyone is equally part of our vibrant community – a place for everyone.

I have lived in Bracknell forest for most of my life and even watched it being developed at the beginning in the 60s. I studied at a local state school and went on study medicine before going into the medical industry and running business that have helped to save lives and transform healthcare. I am passionate about improving people’s lives have lobbied government for stroke services as part of a regional and then national campaign working alongside charities. I set up a medical company which is now developing a cure for brain haemorrhage.
As a qualified self-defence instructor, for several years I taught disadvantaged kids in Bracknell how to be aware of and protect themselves against bullying. I am married with two daughters who both have attended local state schools and passionately believe that a high standard of education is a right and not a privilege and should be open to all regardless of where people may live.
I have been canvassing over the last few months in Bracknell, Wildridings and Central and have heard about the concerns that people have about lack of representation of key issues at the Borough and Town council level.
There are real issues that deserve to be heard and resolved by Councillors who genuinely care; that is why I have chosen to stand for Labour in the May local council elections.
Standing for election to Bracknell Town (Wildridings) Council.
I have lived in Bracknell Forest for 40 years and am married with two grown up children who both attended local schools. My wife works at a local primary school. Bracknell continues to be an excellent place to live, where we feel settled and very much part of the community.
I currently work for Waitrose, previous roles have included working at Heathrow Airport for both BAA and Avis as well as a year working for the London Olympics.
I have been a Foster Carerfor the last 8 years and feel very passionately about creating a positive environment for children to thrive. This also applies to the environment we live in and thishas generated my interest in becoming a town councillor. The fantastic recreation areas and parks we have here in Bracknell are key to ensuring a good quality of life for all and must continue to be maintained and safeguarded.
Throughout my career I have developed skills that could be used effectively in the roleas atown councillor. I have extensive management experience and all my roles have demanded a high level of customer service. I would be privileged to represent my local community. Having the opportunity to listen, discuss and act upon concerns and suggestions would give me a great deal of fulfilment, knowing that I could make a real difference.
With your support, I look forward to contributing to the town council and enabling Bracknell to thrive.
