Why did I go into politics?

Community and charity work are very close to my heart. As a School Governor, a charity trustee and fundraiser, I get great pleasure and satisfaction in contributing and making a difference to my community.

Political office is a way to work every single day on issues that relate to our society, our economy, the security and wellbeing of our children, the welfare of the old, the family, the environment, education and housing. . . in other words all the topics that the public needs politicians to take care of.

In life, the things we do for ourselves die with us, but what we do for others will live for ever. That is why I am in politics.
