It’s difficult to make a difference in the town you live in without access to the local politicians. In a bid to help shape Colchester for the better I have been selected to stand at the local elections next year as the Labour candidate for Castle Ward (which includes the town centre). Needless political point scoring turns me off so my focus, as always, will be positive. Time will tell how I’ll get on but I just want to see if I can contribute towards changing things in Colchester so it achieves its full potential. We’ll see…
