Having lived in Ashley for the past 20 years, I have been involved in many community initiatives, including as one of the organisers for Picton Street Winter Fayre and as chair of trustees for a local residential care home.
As well as being a passionate member of my community, I have also had a long career in health and social care. This has included working as a senior manager at Bristol City Council and Bristol NHS.
Last year, whilst cycling across America, I saw the impact of the climate crisis first-hand. I returned determined to campaign for the environment as well as the community.
The Green Party as it is the only party giving these issues the priority we need. Having already been talking to local people, the air and noise pollution in Ashley cause great concern and this will be one of my top priorities.
