Having been an elected member at both County and Borough level I am acutely aware of the importance of local authorities working together to improve the lives of the people of Kent.
In May 2017 I was elected to Kent County Council for the Ashford Rural East Division. I have served on the Environment & Transport Committee, as well as the Scrutiny, Personnel, Flood Risk Management and Electoral & Boundary Review Committees. I am also a member of the Kent & Medway Fire and Rescue Authority. In May 2019 I was appointed Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care & Public Health.
