Welcome to my personal webpage. I am one of the Councillors representing the Lye and Stourbridge North Ward. I have been a Councillor since May 2006.
I was elected as Leader of the Council from December 2014 to May 2017 and re-elected in September 2018 to November 2018.
I am the Cabinet Member for Finance, Council Sustainability, and Transformation. I serve on full Council meetings, the Appointments Committee and the Amblecote, Cradley, and Wollescote, Lye and Stourbridge North Community Forum.
I see my main role as representing the views of local constituents in a fair and impartial way. In addition to regular roving surgeries, it is my aim to offer regular advice surgeries to ensure I remain accountable to the people of the ward. Please refer to my regular surgery dates listed below. I also aim to offer regular reports of my activities. Please e-mail me for further information on any of the links below.

Councillors Pete Lowe, Mohammed Hanif, and Vanessa Wale hold regular surgeries because they believe it is vital that you have a chance to tell them about problems you or those in your community may be experiencing.
1st Friday of every month - Lye Community Centre, Crosswalks Road, Lye - 5.00pm-6.00pm
In addition 'Roving Surgeries' are held regularly on doorsteps throughout the ward.
