Additional Information

Born in County Durham, I have lived in Gateshead for over forty years.  I am married, with one daughter.

 

I was first elected as a councillor in 1984.  In 2010, I was appointed as Deputy Leader and became Leader of the Council in May 2016.

 

I am actively involved in a number of major national bodies, including the Local Government Association.  Locally, I represent Gateshead on various regional bodies.

 

Prior to taking up from my position as Deputy Leader, I was a Regional Officer for GMB Trade Union from 1987 to 2010.
