Any ward issues or casework can be sent through these means or by emailing, giving me a text or a call.


I was elected a Councillor on Oldham Metropolitan Borough Council in 2012 for Saddleworth North Ward.  I am currently Shadow Cabinet Member for Employment and Skills.


I have been a maths teacher and now work as a Specialist ASD teacher in a resourced provision for students with Autism to enable them to access mainstream education.


My philosophy is to be constructive, is to solve problems, not just to complain about them.  I believe in straight talking but do not believe that the loudest voices speak truest or work most effectively.
