Biography

Having been a councillor for a number of years, I have been lucky enough to hold a couple of positions in which I have been able to represent the town.

I am delighted to have been firstly the Deputy Mayor and then the Mayor of Newport, both positions enabling me to represent the town of Newport in civic roles, which in turn enabled me to promote our town to a wider audience. during my tenure, I was delighted to meet Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards which was one of the many highlights of my time as Mayor.

I have also been the Chair of the Leisure and Environmental Committee, during which time I was heavily involved in the design and opening of the extension to the towns cemetery and also Chair of the Resource and Finance Committee where I was able to help councillors understand why a 5 year budget plan was a good thing to have!

I am a trustee of the Hub on St Marys street. When we are able to open fully, this will be a great meeting place for the community to have coffee and a chat, and for younger members of our community to attend our youth club.

I am very proud to represent the people of Newport and I am always delighted to hear from anyone who needs help and advice.
