I am an in dependant candidate and have drawn and developed my views from a wide range of sources.
What are your main national issues?
A new approach to national issues including an integrated transport and planning policy, the creation of a more democratic parliament, a move toward smaller, smarter governance, the maintenance of a more cohesive society in the pursuit of the ideal that government duty is to truly serve the people.
What are your main local issues?
The re-establishment of the respect for, and the care of, what is a very important residential area which, in recent years, has been badly neglected.
What do you believe you would bring to government as an MHK?
Fresh thinking to a stale house and new ideas to break the current political mindset.
