Election statement:

What I will do:

I am not doing this for the money.  I will donate the difference between what I earn now and what this job pays to charities supporting victims .

Crime is going down.  But people don’t feel that way.   If fear stops you going out, you might as well be under house arrest.  I will work to make our communities not just be safer but feel safer.

People’s views matter.  Less than two per cent replied to the recent police survey.  So how can we be sure we really know what local people think?  I will run a weekly surgery in different parts of our area and get out  to talk to groups across Merseyside. I will go to where people actually are rather than wait for them to come to me.

The police must be as visible as possible.  That means the focus must be on the front line. I will find ways of using the budget so that money goes to front line visibility rather than HQ type buildings.

It is unacceptable that people are victims of hate crime.  I will focus on ways of preventing and dealing with these attacks on people who are vulnerable or different.

Who I am

  • A former leader of the opposition on Liverpool City Council
  • A former local Councillor with a record of getting things done
  • A University Lecturer , I have also been a manager at  some of theUK’s biggest charities.

I live in South Liverpool  and have lived in Southport.  I have worked in Crosby and Liverpool and now work in Ormskirk.
