I have lived in Blackburn all my life and went to a local school. At university I graduated with a degree in chemical engineering .I joined a multinational company as a production manager then started my own manufacturing business in Blackburn, which at one time employed over 25 people. Eventually I decided that I could better use my skills and knowledge to help improve the next generation by going into education. I now teach mathematics, and have been a vice chair of governors and vice chair of northwest neighbour board at Beardwood Humanities College for over 15 years.
I have been actively engaged in local issues for decades and am committed to this area and our town, I want to see better schools, houses and jobs . I want to see everyone treated fairly, not just those who belong to a special group, clan or family.
I am not a professional politician, but a professional who will use politics to solve your problems.It is time to break old habits; the ones that divide us. Blackburn has been under Labour rule for too long and has suffered for it We need a strong voice in Blackburn in order to put a stop to the poor running of our town.
