I am honoured to be able to serve on Newtown Town Council for the North Ward. I have lived in the area for the vast majority of my adult life and want to put back into my local community that has given me so much. I have extensive experience in marketing, project management and team working during my career over the last 20 years and want to use these skills for the betterment on Newtown.

I support Newtown Council’s engagement with the local residents and work towards fostering a town that grows and develops in harmony with the desires of of its inhabitants.

Attendance Record

Your Council’s decisions are made at meetings of the council or its committees.  Your Councillors have a duty to attend all meetings of the Council and meetings of the Committees of which they are members, unless an absence is approved by the meeting for a stated reason, for example a council duty elsewhere or ill-health.

Note that some councillors have been required to attend more meetings than others by reason, for example, of a shorter term of office or lesser number of committees to which elected, so the reader is advised to consider both the total number and the percentage when interpreting the attendance record.
