I am excited to provide a strong, progressive voice for the people of Chichester, Tangmere and Oving as your local Liberal Democrat spokesperson
I was born and grew up in Chichester before moving abroad for several years where I worked as a researcher in the computer games industry. After returning home, I've taken up study at the University of Chichester as a mature student. The state of our schools, which I feel fortunate to have been educated in, is of major concern to me. I wish to take every opportunity I can to help them and lobby the county council to give them a stronger voice.
I believe in and value progressive politics, believing that everyone should have the opportunity in life to reach their full potential, regardless of their background. I believe in placing emphasis on education and ensuring that everyone can access further and higher education or any trade training they wish to pursue. I believe in ensuring that everyone is looked after when they need help, with the best health and social services that can be provided..
Now, it’s no secret that we live in what is considered a “safe” Conservative seat at the parliamentary level. Many of you reading this no doubt consider yourselves strong supporters of the Conservative party. Unfortunately, this has not worked well for Chichester. As a safe seat, those in control of the budgets have seen little reason to invest in the Chichester area.
