I am incredibly humbled and extremely excited to be voted in as your councillor. Thank you for the messages of support and encouragement both on the run up to the election and since. I am looking forward to working hard for our community and building on the “To Do” list already generated from the conversations with neighbours over the last few weeks.

I will continue to be active, visible and available. There is great deal of work ahead to address concerns already raised as well as those which will develop in the weeks, months and years to come. I am here to help and will keep in touch through my quarterly newsletter Chase Issues

Whilst the next few weeks are busy with an induction programme arranged by the Council I will still be out and about working on the Community Speedwatch to source and apply for funding as well as the concerns raised about litter, green spaces and potholes. As well as a number of concerns raised by individuals the time ahead will be interesting, varied and busy.

It will take me a while, if at all, to get used to being called Councillor but be assured my first priority remains Hednesford and the campaigning on issues which are our collective priorities for a better, stronger community.

Again thank you for your support and the privilege of meeting so many fantastic people over the last few weeks. Whether we have had the chance to meet yet or not, if have questions for me, please do contact me by email, phone or catch me in the street.

We achieved 618 votes with conservative and labour trailing in 2nd and 3rd respectively with 320 and 298 votes whilst UKIP polled 213 votes with, collectively the highest turnout in the District at 35.67%
