I made five pledges to residents when I stood for election in May 2019. This is where you can find out what I have been doing towards fulfilling them.
As an Independent councillor I will put Dewsbury first on every decision and will not approve any council budget that does not give Dewsbury its fair share of investment.
Kirklees Council must immediately pull out all the stops to boost trade in Dewsbury Town Centre. I will support measures such as free short stay parking on all streets.
I will help residents to fight the removal of all equipment from a range of local playgrounds being proposed by Labour.
I will continue to campaign against the use of non-stun slaughter for halal meat in local school meals, supporting the work of the RSPCA and British Veterinary Association.
I will work to reinstate regular Police Community Forum meetings so that residents can discuss their concerns over crime and anti-social behaviour face-to-face.
- 12/05/2019 — I have informed local inspectors that I am keen to launch regular forums.
