Living and running a business in Reading for the last five years has given me the opportunity to come into contact with lots of the town's residents from all walks of life. It's given me a great understanding of local issues and what matters most to the people of Reading.
Having made Reading my home and settled down to raise a family here, I decided to get involved in the local community.
As a result, I have a strong local network of family, friends and business partners. It would now be an honour to serve as a ward councillor for Katesgrove as it would give me the opportunity to serve my community even more. I would always put the best interests of local residents first.
As a fellow resident of the ward I ask for your support and trust in my bid to serve you as your Councillor. I pledge to work hard day and night for the well-being of everyone in Katesgrove, not least to improve the social cohesion and economic opportunities for all of our wonderful local communities.
