I am honoured to have been re-elected as the County Councillor for Bramcote and Beeston North and thank all those residents that put their trust in me for another 4 years. I love the area I represent and the people. I live here. It’s the community I am part of and will continue to represent to the best of my ability.
There is one issue I would like to clear up. There was an accusation before the election that I was in this for the money and that I claimed lots of expenses. Indeed, someone suggested sending a Freedom of Information request. Well you don’t have to do that as this information is readily available on the County Council’s website and I have attached it below. Those making the accusations will see that I receive the basic allowance (on which I pay tax and national insurance) and I didn’t claim any expenses. One of few councillors that does not claim expenses. The figures for 20/21 will be published shortly and will show exactly the same.
