Location London Borough of Sutton, Wallington South Ward
Introduction I’ve lived in Sutton for over 30 years. In that time I’ve worked for companies like Sainsburys, BOC & HSBC. My children were all born in St Helier Hospital and went to local schools. I am a Director of Living Streets, the pedestrians charity that encourages walking for fun and health and an observer on BioRegional at BedZED. It has been my priviledge to serve on Sutton Council for over 16 years. During this time I’ve been responsible for many services ranging from education to planning and waste & recycling to street cleaning. I’m proud to have been responsible for making Lib Dem run Sutton one of the greenest Councils in London. As Deputy Leader of the Council I’m leading the work to make the council smaller, more efficient and focussed on serving you. I’m determined to ensure that our borough weathers the recession well. And I will continue to work with the GLA, Transport for London and our MPs to bring investment to Sutton. I’ve had some success and locally this led to a major project to improve Wallington and similar projects in Hackbridge and Worcester Park. I’m now leading the councils work to bring trams to Sutton linking local people to jobs and boosting the local economy.
