About Me

Thank you for visiting my pages. As leader of Nottingham City Council, I am responsible for delivering our manifesto promises and ensuring that Nottingham is a great place to live and work for all.

I was first elected to the Council in 1995 to represent Dales ward and has served on the Council’s Executive for 10 years, most recently as Portfolio Holder for Early Intervention and Early Years. As Leader I am now responsible for Regeneration, Safety and Communications.

At a time of great cynicism towards politicians I want Nottingham City Council to stand out as a group of people who do what they say they will do. I want to ensure that Nottingham City Council does this in partnership so that the resources that may not be in the council, but are present across the city, are harnessed to achieve the ambitious and exciting pledges that we have set out to the public.
