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.
