Biography:

Having lived in Newport for over 13 years, I am profoundly dedicated to advocating for Wales and its wonderful residents. My journey began in 1990 when I emigrated from the UK to New Zealand. Over 15 years ago, I returned to the UK, where I have since married, had two children, moved to Newport and embraced the vibrant Welsh culture and community.

Unfortunately, the rich way of life and proud culture in Wales have been significantly neglected by both Westminster and the Senedd during my time here. This neglect has motivated me to run as an MP for Newport East. I believe it is time for a change; the people of Newport, Wales, and the UK deserve better representation.

As your MP, I will oppose burdensome taxes on both individuals and businesses. My aim is to support ordinary working people and challenge the unfair advantages enjoyed by large corporations. I plan to spearhead a task force dedicated to reducing the appalling NHS waiting lists and improving the overall healthcare services that are failing us all.

Furthermore, I will stand against penalising car drivers with clean air taxes without first investing in comprehensive public transport solutions. I will also push for an urgent review for widening of the Brynglas Tunnels. I am committed to endorsing truly sustainable and affordable green energy initiatives, and I will actively support any Newport-area MPs who seek to advance a Newport Tidal Energy Project.

Lastly, I will advocate for everyone aspiring to own a home by pushing for government support and establishing targets for building affordable houses. My goal is to ensure that ordinary working people have access to homes they can afford.


I am eager to serve the people and businesses of Newport East on behalf of Reform UK.
