Why I'm standing
I am standing to represent the people of this area who have been denied a voice for too long. Scarborough and Whitby is my home turf. I have been educated here, I have built a business here, I have fostered friendships here, I surf this coastline, I walk these streets and I know the people in this community - in short, it is home.
I will engage and motivate the local membership in all campaign activities and utilise the broad range of skills that I know exist in our movement. By doing so, I believe we can translate the fantastic Labour manifesto and apply it to local issues and problems, thus providing solutions that people can embrace.Read my plan
We have a fantastic blueprint for building a fairer society for all. However, we must tackle the specific challenges which affect our part of the country, as our coastal communities have been hit particularly hard by a continued lack of strategic planning and investment. I will work hard to reverse this trend.Read my priorities
I am not a career politician, but someone who has lived a varied life and gained a lot of valuable real world experience. I consider myself humble but highly motivated, with a deep connection to this wonderful part of the country and a real passion for improving the lives of the people who live here.Read my story
