I was elected to the County Council in 2017 and represent the Glenfields, Kirby Muxloe and Leicester Forests Ward.
In my first year, I served on Health and Communities Scrutiny as Chairman, Scrutiny Commission, and as Vice Chairman of the Pension Committee. I was vice Chairman of the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Joint Health Overview Committee.
For the second year of office, I was appointed as Lead Support Member for Adult and Social Care which incorporates Libraries, Museums and Heritage. I retained my Vice Chairman of Pensions Committee.
This year I was honoured to be promoted to Lead Member for Health and Communities as Cabinet Member. I am excited to continue the great work done last year by our now Chairman, Mrs Pam Posnett and also privileged to follow in Mr Ernie White's footsteps, who was the Lead Member for many years.
