My main interest is in supporting my fellow Labour Councillors.  Making sure the residents of Chadsmoor, Cannock Chase and Staffordshire enjoy a better standard of life.


Working as hard as I can, with my Labour colleagues, to achieve control of the County Council at the next election due 2017. Meanwhile, I intend to form an effective opposition, by scrutinising the current cabinet.


In my spare time I thoroughly enjoy researching Local History, specialising in Family genealogy and the extensive history of Hazel Slade a former mining village on Cannock Chase.
