I stood for election as a County Councillor for Broadfield and was elected in 2013 and again in 2017 with a very large majority.
I was also chair and a trustee of the community centre in Broadfield for many years and a Governor at Seymour School for 9 years.
Since becoming a County councillor in 2013 I have sat on many committees and at present am on – Planning, Environment and Communities Scrutiny Committee, Standing Advisory on Religious Education, Walking and Cycling working group, County Local Committee and Business Planning group.
At a recent planning Committee I was the only Councillor to vote against fracking the other 12 tories voted in favour, (I call them the dirty dozen) and I have received e-mails from residents in the county thanking me for voting against the decision.
On every committee, including full Council I have always challenged the Tories, and raised written questions on many issues.
If elected I will continue to work tirelessly for my division to date I have had many successes in dealing with residents requests and some of my achievements include getting a new pedestrian crossing at the Barton on the road down towards Seymour school to improve safety for children and parents, Double yellow lines outside Broadfield East School to stop inconsiderate and dangerous parking outside the school, 2 dropped kerbs to enable wheelchair users to cross the road and destination signs to help visitors reach the motorway and find the various exists on which is a large estate.
I have very good relationships in our multi cultural community with all residents including the Mosque which I have regular contact with the Chair Arif Syed.
As you are aware after 45 years in Broadfield I am very well known and always seem to have a huge amount of casework in the ward dealing with many issues from road repairs, maintenance and potholes and fly tipping as well as other issues as many residents still think of me as a CBC councillors as well. I always respond to all issues whether to help or signpost residents to the correct person or department.
