Living in Croydon all of my life has instilled a strong sense of passion for Croydon and it's future. I have always been active in many of the local campaigns and projects, growing up in an area which prides itself on its Community spirit, and the ability to show a united front against issues that are important to the local residents. I would like the whole of Croydon to have the same sense of Pride in it's community, and would strive as a Councillor to expand this to all areas of Croydon.
I am very excited to have been made the Shadow Cabinet Member for Sustainable Croydon! It is more important than ever, that we as a Council, and community take pragmatic and urgent steps to help improve our environment.
