I HAVE lived in Goring for more than eight years.
I am 57 and married with two sons, two stepchildren and five grandchildren. I work as a company secretary.
I’m currently the Goring representative on Oxfordshire County Council and sit on Goring Parish Council.
It has been a steep learning curve with some ups and some downs but I believe I’ve gained enough experience to be a effective advocate for Goring and South Stoke on South Oxfordshire District Council.
I used to be a quantity surveyor and spent many years in the construction industry, which has given me lots of experience running projects to a tight budget. I also ran an IT department for a time in a varied career.
I’ve grown to love this area (it turns out a family member lived here 148 years ago) and I intend to do my best to keep the things we treasure while making sure we look to the future.
We owe it to future generations to work hard at not spoiling the legacy our ancestors have left us.
