I believe that Labour members should engage with their local communities. To this end I have been a Calstock Parish councillor since 2017. As well as representing my ward, my interest is in housing and planning policy.
I believe in a member led, campaigning CLP that accepts the views of all shades of opinion and which encourages robust and open debate. I see the role of vice chair as supporting the chair in achieving these aims by acting as a sounding board, giving advice and assisting in the conduct of meetings. I believe my experience in the Labour movement over 40 years helps me to do this.
