A fairer future for Ramsgate

Kent County Council victory

I’m passionate about fairness but I believe Ramsgate is being left behind. With some vision and hard work it could be, and should be, a vibrant community full of opportunities for all who live, work and visit here.

This May local voters elected me to Kent County Council to be a vocal champion for our area. I am taking on the role knowing I will be a strong voice for our corner of Kent and promising to fight for a fairer future for Thanet.

Thanks to all those who campaigned and to the thousands who voted Labour. Read more.
