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.
