Why does it matter that people vote in council elections?
It really matters that people vote in Council election as local councillors can focus on local issues that affect all of us.
Why are you standing to be a councillor?
I am standing as Councillor in Peninsula because I am passionate about the area that we live in. Greenwich is a beautiful place and is visited by millions of people every year. There are thousands of people who live and work here and our role as councillors should be about supporting all of these people and to sustain a safe and vibrant Greenwich for all.
What do you like most about the area you wish to represent?
There are 2 things that immediately come to mind about East Greenwich – the view at the top of Maze Hill is stunning and the energy and tenacity of the local traders in East Greenwich.
If elected, what would be your priorities for the Peninsula ward over the next four years?
My priorities, if I was elected, for Peninsula ward are :
· Doing what residents really want
· Stop Labour’s misguided plans for blocking roads north of Trafalgar Road
· Stop unsuitable modern buildings in or bordering the East Greenwich conservation area
· Revive East Greenwich and Trafalgar Road shops and businesses
