I have served you on Rutland County Council for the past 8 years. I promised then that I would listen to you and be your voice at the Council. I have done this by addressing the concerns that you have raised with me at “open surgeries” following my many newsletters.
I will campaign for a larger medical facility in Oakham which is fit for the future, with improved access to health professionals. This includes campaigning to keep our hospital in Oakham, where I was born.
I believe that the Council should put young people at the centre of all they do and so I will continue to fight for better youth services and facilities.
Our town centre needs a major boost and I strongly support the work of the residents’ group.
I am a local candidate, running a small business here and being a Director of Casterton College, so I understand your needs and concerns. I have spent eight years listening and working on your behalf. I will continue to do so.
