Well I am fast approaching the end of my Four Year term on Wolverhampton City Council. I have greatly enjoyed my return to active politics.
But the Wednesfield North Labour Party has selected me to represent them in the City Council election in May 2016.
I am very proud of the role I have played since returning to the Council and its been a pleasure to represent my community yet again. There has been some highs and lows over this period but I can see the progress that has been made in the community, and within Wednesfield & The City. Here in Wednesfield North I have helped thousands of individuals and families, business and volunteers in all the years that I have been active in politics. However in the last four years highlights include –
- The continued development of the ‘Hub at Ashmore Park’ has been a highlight
- The fight to stop the ‘Blood Clinic’ moving from Ashmore Park Health Centre to other areas of the City, was a success.
- The fight to save The Ashmore Inn and it now being recognised as a Community Asset gives a warm glow!
In these three issues I have played a role in assisting the community save what they felt is valuable.
I have also played my part in the City Council. The areas where I have been active is in the Scrutiny process, the economy and the City image.
I have also promoted heavily the Wyrley & Essington Canal, and I still hold out the hope of turning it into a Local Nature Reserve. Indeed the canal and the activities that I have promoted on the canal has brought me special pleasure. #SpeakingUp4WednesfieldNorth!
