Additional Information

I was elected as a member of the Council in May 2007.  I am married with one son.


I was born in Gateshead and have always lived in the borough.  I was educated and worked in Gateshead so am aware of residents needs and aspirations related to these areas.


I worked in the Engineering industry before moving on to work in the Construction industry then Housing.  I left full-time employment for some time to enter into full-time education, gaining a BA Hons Degree in Combined Studies in Cultural and Social Studies, and afterwards a Post-Graduate Diploma in Housing Management and Social Policy.


I am a member of GMB and AMICUS trade unions.


I entered into politics because I believe that the people of Gateshead deserve nothing but the best possible public service provision.  This can only be achieved by getting involved in the decision making process.


I represent the Council on a number of outside bodies including Tyne and Wear Pensions Committee.


My main interests are housing provision, education and the sustainability of Gateshead's Communities.
