Your trusted, local voice...


``I fell in love with Warrington – the town, its green open spaces, and its people – on my first visit in 1998 and came to live here with my family. It was a great honour to become the 133rd Mayor and first citizen of Warrington in 2016, and a privilege to serve you now in Parliament…``


My political life at a glance...

I took an active part in the 2010 general election as I wanted to make a positive contribution to my community at the time of a difficult economic era.

Due to my very active role in campaigning and helping the Labour candidate in Warrington South in the general election, I was asked by local party members to stand for a council seat.

I was elected as a Councillor in Warrington in May 2011 and Parish Councillor in 2012.


My passion for helping my local community led me to stand for a council seat in 2011 which was not a target seat and I worked very hard to prove myself, winning the Whittle Hall seat back for Labour after 8 years. After the boundary changes, the ward has been renamed as Chapelford & Old Hall.

I am proud to be representing the residents of Chapelford & Old Hall who have shown great confidence in me. In return, I have tried my best to keep their trust and have worked hard to represent their interests at the council which I will continuously strive to do but now as their MP, along with my fellow ward councillors, Rebecca Knowles and Steve Parish.


I became the 133rd Mayor and first citizen of Warrington in 2016.

I always wanted to make a difference in the local community and was passionate about improving lives and building a stronger and more cohesive community where we all have acceptance, peace, love and harmony devoid of prejudice about colour, race and religion.

With these ambitions in my sight, I was given this lifetime opportunity of serving the people of Warrington as their Mayor. And in a matter just one year, we have worked together towards changing the social and business landscape of Warrington.


My Academic Background and Professional Career at a Glance...

I have a masters degree in business administration (MBA) and have worked in the banking industry for almost 20 years.

I was a team manager at HBOS where I lead and managed a team involving a range of management activities, from sales, recruitment to performance management.

Since joining Natwest Bank in January 2006, I have been managing a portfolio of SME customers and covering business development activities. This has provided me with an insight of issues businesses are facing and gave me an opportunity to help them.

Haven’t we had a busy day today across Warrington South! Well done to Bridgewater branch who also braved the bitterly cold weather for their monthly collection in support of Warrington Foodbank in Stockton Heath. Parish councillors, Angela Fell, Helen Dutton and Laurence Murphy were out with branch members and Warrington Young Labour. They were delighted with the generosity of local residents. Further collections of food and toiletries are planned for the third Saturday morning of every month outside the Mulberry Tree pub in Victoria Square, Stockton Heath.
