East Cliff and Springbourne


Passionate about our community

I moved to Dorset when I was five years old and apart from my three years at university down in Plymouth, I’ve lived here ever since.

I live and work in Bournemouth, and I’m passionate about putting our great town on the map. I want to make Bournemouth the best place for people to live, work, study, and retire, and to reinforce and foster its place as a top holiday destination and business hotspot.

As a councillor, I want to ensure that the residents of East Cliff and Springbourne have a strong voice in the townhall who will stand up for local interests and give our community the investment and representation it deserves.

Unleash Bournemouth’s potential

The people of East Cliff and Springbourne and the whole of Bournemouth are ambitious for our town.

From speaking to local residents, they share my ambition for the future of Bournemouth, but too many hardworking people feel that our Conservative-controlled local council and central government do not share that vision.

If elected on Thursday 4th May 2023, I’ll ensure that I will work everyday to represent the interests of local people at the townhall and be their voice to unleash the potential of our town, which for too long has been held back by the Conservatives.

Delivering change

The role of a local councillor is to represent local people’s interests in the townhall, but just as critically to be a key part of the local community.

Our current Conservative council struggles to get the basics right: roads not resurfaced, streets uncleaned, green spaces unprotected, and the disgrace of sewage dumped into our seas and waterways.

If elected, I’ll listen to local people to put their interests front and centre of everything I do, and I’ll try my utmost to be the best councillor I can be.

Vote Labour on Thursday 4th May 2023, and together we’ll deliver the change East Cliff and Springbourne, and Bournemouth more widely, so desperately needs.
