I stood for Labour in Aylesbury in the 2019 general election and came second. I am passionate campaigner in education having worked for the British Science Association on projects to encourage kids to enter careers in the sciences, engineering and mathematics.
During the pandemic I worked with local food charities and provided free meals for kids during half term and cooked meals for the homeless.
I understand first hand the effects of restrictions on businesses and the problems we had communicating with the council. I spoke to local businesses and wrote briefings on the local support needed to enable businesses to recover. Once restrictions are lifted, businesses in affected sectors will need to work together to enable a strong recovery. I am ideally placed to enable sectors and council services to work together to build a thriving town centre that residents will want to visit.
