I have lived in Bracknell for twenty years, currently in Priestwood. I am a trustee of two local elderly Day Centres, and the local community centre. I am interested in ensuring that the elderly of Bracknell have access to quality services, allowing those over sixty-five to enjoy a safe and full life.
This election is about the future of education, housing and our NHS.
• It’s estimated that £5m will be cut from Bracknell Forest’s education budget by 2019, this equates to 134 teachers • Many residents are asking how will their children afford their own home when a two bed flat here costs from £200k to buy, or about £950 per month to rent • All agree that NHS staff are working beyond their capacity and that this must change •
I’m now self-employed as a consultant to Small and Medium Enterprises within the Thames Valley area, and I have extensive public and private sector experience in the UK, USA and Europe.
Thirteen hi-tech companies have their European headquarters in the Bracknell area, contributing to our local economy through employment and business rates. These companies and their benefits must remain. Instead of threats against Europe, Labour will negotiate a ‘soft’ Brexit.
My personal pledges to you are:
• I will live in Bracknell • Be your full time representative with no second job • Publish my expenses regularly • Hold regular drop-in surgeries throughout the constituency •
