Why I want to represent Callowland:
Born and raised in Watford and lived most of my life on the Holywell estate, I moved to North Watford 2 years ago after beginning a new chapter in my work career on the Greycaine Road industrial estate. I’ve been a volunteer for the party for most of the last decade. However, it was not until after I moved here in summer 2019 and saw what was needed to make Callowland better that I was interested in running for council for the reasons stated below.
Top 3 priorities for Callowland:
First and foremost, I am all about putting residents first. I believe in a common-sense approach to local issues, where residents are thoroughly consulted before decisions are made that will impact on numerous aspects of their everyday lives. Whether it is a CPZ, a new development or a pair of double yellow lines, you will be consulted and residents will always come first. Cleaner streets are my second biggest issue. Fly-tipping and dog fouling are a continuous issue and need to be addressed and I have spent the bulk of my free time in lockdown reporting this and clearing up our local green spaces. Finally, and perhaps the most important priority is to ensure a strong voice for North Watford and work alongside existing councillors to ensure key issues are prioritised and ultimately represent your needs, not just the town centre.
A little about me:
I work as an Exams compliance coordinator for an online awarding organisation, helping shape the future with producing and maintaining banks of exams for vocational courses and apprenticeships. I am incredibly passionate about sports, music and mental health. In my spare time I am often hiking, rock climbing or reading works on positive behavioural patterns. During the first lockdown, I helped set up a Football YouTube channel in the first lockdown and we are now the 3rd biggest West Ham channel. This summer I am looking to launch my own positive wellbeing channel in a bid to help others. I live by the motto “Everybody is the hero of their own story”. If you see me out and about please stop me for a chat – at 2 metres distance of course!
I have a habit of being able to impersonate Tom Hardy characters (but unfortunately I don’t look like him) and I can remember almost every West Ham score since 2002 and more often than not the name of the scorers and order they scored in.
