Having lived on the edge of our great city with my family all my life, it has been an absolute honour and privilege to represent the wonderful constituency of York Outer since 2010. It has been extremely important to me to be accessible to all, and I pride myself on that record. I remain as determined as ever to continue with and improve this commitment where I can.
I hope that you find my website helpful and informative, and please remember that I am here to serve you, regardless of your political persuasion. Therefore if I can be of any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me directly.
With kind regards
