Liberal Democrat Candidate for Campbell Park and Old Woughton
Focus- Resilience- Patience- Empathy-Action-Confidence
When I decide I am going to do something, I am focused and resilient. I do not give up until it is done.
That makes me a doer and an action oriented person. They say 'if you need something done give it to a busy woman'. I do not wait around for others to do anything that I can do.
I have learnt that patience is not about sitting down with your hands crossed waiting for manna to fall from heaven. Patience is active. It is doing and being focused and resilient whilst being in expectation of what you need to happen.
Building a successful organisation from the ground up has built my confidence in what I can do and in who I am. I have learnt most things are possible if I approach them with confidence and self belief.
These are the values I live by. I believe that it is vital to have empathy for others no matter their situation. Different life experiences has taught me the value of this.
I am the person you want to represent you in Milton Keynes. I get things done with empathy, focus resilience and patience and I will always speak up in your interest because I am confident in what I can do.
Listening, Caring, Working for Milton Keynes
I think life should be lived with passion.
I do this everyday in my work as I train young people to make films and watch them grow and learn through the process. Having worked with 1500 children I continue to commit to educating and providing opportunities for filmmaking which tell stories and have impact on communities.
Working with community groups and mainstream organisations I use my experience, training and passion to create understanding and support and provide platforms for communication, collaboration and understanding.
The Issues people want fixed
Over the past year I have worked more actively within the community and I have come to learn that people care very much about their environment and their communities.
Our recent Focus team survey has also confirmed this with people identifying their top three priorities as road repairs, landscaping and litter.
I have already been working in these areas on behalf of residents. As a Milton Keynes Councillor I will have access to far more resources within the Council to ensure these are deployed to effectively address these concerns.
As a member of the Focus Team for Campbell Park and Old Woughton (CPOW)I have been out and about meeting residents and going to work on their behalf. Here are just a few of the casework I have been involved in.
Electing me ensures you have an active hard-working person on Council who will be busy about meeting your interests and solving your problems.
I recently took a tour of roads in Bolbeck Park, Pennyland and Willen Park to see portholes earmarked for repair this year.
They included Sovereign Drive and Shilling Close in Penny Land, Montgomery Crescent in Bolbeck Park and the junction of Hobert Crescent and Willen Park Avenue.
I was glad to note that some very horrible looking ones would soon be a thing of the past for residents.
Wavell Court To Get A Sign
After going for three years without a street name to tell visitors the name of their street, the residents of Wavell Court in Bolbeck Park will now get their street sign replaced.
This is after I raised the issue up at Milton Keynes Council as residents had complained about it with no results for so long.
Lexham Road waiting for relief
Like much of Ashland, Lexham Road has seen much of its landscaping go undone.
I have been talking with MK Council, the Parks Trust and English Homes and anticipate some relief soon for residents.
These are videos on issues that matter to me and interviews with other people on important subjects that can be of interest to residents across Milton Keynes. Contact me if you would like me to make a video or conduct an interview on any issue that matters to you.
