    Greetings and welcome to my new political and campaigns blog for Lincoln City Council’s Glebe Ward. Throughout the next few weeks (and beyond!!) I will blog about what I would like to change for the City Council, my views on present politics and give you a place to comment on my thoughts.

    As a quick starter, I have lived in Lincolnshire all my life and moved to Lincoln 4 years ago. I’m 22 and currently studying a humanities degree with Open University, and most of my employment focuses on Mental Health Service User representation in the NHS and national mental health charities. In particular, I am also a national advisor for two children’s mental health charities; YoungMinds ( and Right-Here (

    My main areas of interest are Mental Health and Education, as well as participation in politics.

    My main hope is to put in place ways for anyone in Lincoln to quickly put forward their ideas and opinions on decisions made by the council, by using the internet, newsletters and regular surgeries to keep in contact. I also will create regular opinion polls so that I can be accountable to the people who voted for me, rather than to a political party or ideology.

    I am standing forward as a Liberal Democrat as I feel they are the only party putting people, rather than politicians or millionaires, in power. I feel they are the only party that want to get in power so they can give it away, through a change of the voting system, a change in parliament and more local government.
