I moved to the area in 1973 where my two children attended school and I taught at a local college for 25 years. While there I joined NATFHE, the union for lecturers, and became a union rep.
I was raised in the North East in a mining community with a strong affiliation to the Labour Party and the TU movement and it was here that I learned the true Labour values of justice and fairness for all. I have been a life-long Labour voter and joined the party after Jeremy Corbyn’s election in 2015.
I want to see justice and fairness in the Eastleigh area where decent, affordable housing is available for everyone, with reliable public transport, accessible health care and quality social services for children and the elderly.
For too long, citizens have been ignored by those in charge, both locally and nationally. If I am elected I promise to take the time to listen to constituents and help to address their issues.
