I was born in Plymouth, married with two grown-up children and worked for Blue Circle Cement for 31 years. After retiring I worked in adult social care for various companies including the City Council.
I have been a Labour Party member for over 25 years and a Union Member for of all my working life. I have campaigned in all city wards throughout my time in the Party including being election agent on many occasions.
I was elected to the Council in 1991, serving as member or chair on various scrutiny committees. I remained on the Labour group until 1996. Since being re-elected after my retirement in 2011, I have been a member of the Caring Plymouth Panel, the Transformation Advisory Panel and chair of Your Plymouth where I enjoyed the challenge of scrutiny. I currently serve as a Director of Millfields Trust and a governor at St Peter’s C of E Primary School.
In 2014 I was selected to serve in the Cabinet as Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care.I believe I have worked hard to meet the new challenges of integrating Social Care and Health and I look forward to the opportunity of working with colleagues and staff to take forward the transformation of the service if I am selected.
