My Story


I know the positive changes a Labour government can make, I was the first in my family to attend university, studying Law at Lancaster University.

I've served as a Labour Borough Councillor since 2011 and County Councillor since 2013 - winning both seats from the Conservatives. Working with a fantastic team, I played an integral role in helping Labour secure an unprecedented three term Labour majority administration on Gedling Borough Council - never done before since the council’s creation in 1974.

In 2014, I was Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Newark CLP in Nottinghamshire, receiving the backing of the FBU, GMB, Unison & USDAW. I know how to take the fight to the Tories, contesting the 2014 Newark parliamentary by-election, substantially increasing Labour's vote share between 2014 and the 2015 General Election and taking Labour from third to second place.

Since 2017, I've served as Labour’s Deputy Leader of Labour in local government in England & Wales - representing all Labour councils, groups and over 6,000 councillors nationally. I travel the length of the UK helping Labour to win in local government.

I'm a lifelong campaigner for social equality. As one of the UK's first openly gay Deputy Council Leaders, I've campaigned relentlessly for more representation of BAME, LGBT, disabled and women members at all levels of our party and public offices. In 2018, I worked with LGBT+ Labour to establish LGBT+ Labour Councillors Network, and I'm serving as the inaugural chair.

Contact me

How can the party better support our grassroots, activists & candidates? How do we stay radical, relevant and win the confidence of the public?

What can we do to get more women, BAME, disabled and LGBT+ candidates and tear down the structural inequalities that still exist in society?

Finally, how can I represent you best and feedback my work on your behalf? I want to hear from you - please get in touch.

Daffodils or Tulips?
Which do you prefer?

Tulips for me. ⚘🌷

💉 37,206 PEOPLE IN GEDLING BOROUGH VACCINATED WITH FIRST DOSE OF COVID-19 VACCINE - THANK YOU NHS 💉

The roll out of the vaccine is the NHS and Britain at its best. Thank you to the genius scientists, NHS nurses, doctors, volunteers, council workers and all those playing their part in getting everyone vaccinated as swiftly and safely as possible. Here in Gedling I'm proud of the part we've played using our Richard Herrod Centre in Carlton as one of the flagship vaccination centres in Nottinghamshire.

Distributing the vaccine is an absolutely critical step in our journey back to brighter days. Coronavirus has been the greatest challenge the NHS has faced since it was created by Clement Attlee's Labour Government in 1948 - we owe our NHS a huge debt. 💙💙💙
