What has made you decide to stand for election?

I’ve¬†always wanted to represent¬†my community here in Fulwood because I believe¬†that new blood as well as fresh ideas and energy are¬†needed. Not just in Garrison ward but across the¬†whole of Preston Council.

What are the key issues for your ward?

I want Fulwood to get its fair share of resources from Preston Council and tackle big issues such as the lack of tougher planning enforcement.

If you were elected how would you keep your constituents informed?

All Liberal Democrats in Preston work locally, and I follow this with regular Focus leaflets every three months. I will be always around knocking on doors and asking residents of Garrison what they would like to see changed. My contact details can be found on the regularly distributed Focus leaflets:
