Exwick and St Thomas - Devon County Council Candidate
It’s a great privilege to represent Exwick and St Thomas. Over the years I have done my best to dedicate my time, energy, passion and efforts to represent and care for both Exwick and St Thomas. We all know that our local area is a very special part of Exeter, we have a real sense of community pride and strong neighbourhoods – together we are a community.
I am honoured to have been re-selected for both the Exeter City Council and Devon County Council Elections on Thursday 6th May 2021. I have been a City Councillor for St Thomas since 2003, and a County Councillor for Exwick and St Thomas since 2005, and I have previous elected experience since 1995. In these roles, I have worked on many committees, serving as the Lord Mayor and Deputy Lord Mayor of Exeter, lobbied and campaigned with and for local people, and secured many local neighbourhood improvements both big and small, including the £175,000 to complete the St Thomas Community Centre.
Over many years at various times, I have been a governor of five local schools and was a founder Governor of the West Exe Children’s Centre.
I have been a member of the Farm Hill Residents Association, Chaired the Foxhayes Project Working Group, and for many years was a trustee and chair of the Exwick Community Association.
Our collective local response to the pandemic continues to be inspiring and heart-warming. If re-elected again I will carry on working hard concentrating on local grassroots issues and neighbourhood concerns with my ward colleagues, and Ben Bradshaw’s team. Thank you for your support.
