The past two years for me has been a whirlwind of activity. A steep learning curve and a lot of work. I've attended countless meetings, spoken to many residents, campaigned on local issues and kept a close eye on those 'secret' decisions being made by the Conservatives behind closed doors.
It's hasn't been an easy ride for us Lib Dems, particularly with the loss of our leader, late last year. However, we continue, as always, to remain committed to giving our residents a voice and taking a common sense approach to decision making. I hope residents will support me going forward and are safe in the knowledge that I will always act in their interests first.
