I am so pleased to be writing this as the prospective county council candidate for the May 2017 elections.
I have been campaigning for social justice my whole life and have voted for the Labour Party since I could vote in 1980. I have been watching the current and last governments severely cut local funding and strip away the hopes of many members of our community to have a decent life, and that has prompted me to step forward and seek election as a Councillor.
Over the years I have watched Cambridge grow into a centre of research and technology and attract multinational investment in a way that has greatly helped local businesses but has also created enormous pressure, not least because it has made buying an average house being beyond the most hard working and ambitious young person. This is now a serious problem for key workers.
Now I want to help the people of Trumpington Ward be heard.
