"Bath is a city that attracts people from across the world, not only to visit, but also to live and work. As residents, you quite rightly take the success of the city very seriously. I’ve always been incredibly impressed by our community spirit, where local people will band together and fight for issues that they believe in, and are affected by."

"Despite its beauty, Bath has serious problems. We are one of the worst cities for air pollution in the UK. Our streets grind to a halt every rush hour as our road system struggles to cope. Many people who grew up here, or who work here, can’t afford to live in the city. There’s a social housing waiting list of over 4000 people. We have a large homeless population. Our mental health and addiction services can’t cope. The list goes on. I care deeply about these problems, and was elected to work through them. We have the opportunity to make Bath a better place to live for everyone."

"In the news section below you can keep up to date on progress on my work tackling these issues in Bath, as well as what I am doing in parliament on your behalf."
