Fi has represented Redland ward for nearly 12 years. During that time, she’s had a huge variety of roles within the council, but particularly enjoys sitting on planning and licensing committees, making sure that residents are listened to and that decisions are made fairly.
She really likes the community side of being a councillor and tries to attend as many parks and neighbourhood groups as possible, doing her best to get stuff done quickly – often no mean feat. Like other councillors, she’s there to help residents find their way through council processes, helping with issues as varied as disabled parking bays and dead foxes in the road.
She has campaigned on improving air quality in Redland, better highway safely and most recently forced the council to withdraw unexpected bills for home-to-school transport for post 16 disabled children.
