I enjoy living in Beaconsfield, we share a beautiful town with a great heritage and quality of life. I am standing for the town council to help to preserve our environment and make Beaconsfield an even better place to live. I have a track record as a councillor in Wandsworth where I was responsible for introducing doorstep recycling, providing outstanding Social Services for vulnerable local people and delivering excellent value for money. I work in finance in London and travel on the Chiltern line daily, so I know the importance of good transport links balanced with a sensitive parking policy. As a parent of two young children, I am determined to ensure we give our youngsters the best start in life and leave future generations with a healthy environment and a vibrant local economy. At the same time, I believe we should find ways to enable people with a lifetime of experience to benefit the local community. Whilst, the crime rate is still relatively low, I will work with the police to help keep Beaconsfield safe.
