"I have lived in Tonbridge all my life and had the honour of being elected as one of your Borough Councillors in 2015. Over the past four years I have campaigned against unnecessary spending and have worked hard to ensure that the Council delivers essential services efficiently at the lowest possible cost to taxpayers. I am proud to have been involved with the fantastic regeneration project at Town Lock and the new pedestrian crossing on the junction of Cannon Lane and Hadlow Road. Tonbridge has an exciting future ahead and I am determined to help make our town even better!"
