As a local councillor for 12 years and an Eltham resident for 20 years, I've been working hard for local residents and understand many of the problems that people in Eltham face.
That's why this year I have been campaigning for:
A grammar school for Eltham.
Grammar schools are highly valued by Eltham parents and I want to give them that choice.
As a parent and a teacher I know how important it is for our children to get the best education possible. I want to see school choice expanded, while the Labour council has sought to constrain it.
I've welcomed the new Greenwich Free School, the University Technical College with its focus on apprenticeships and Crown Woods becoming an Academy.
But I want to see a grammar school too, because they give children of all backgrounds a great start in life.
Better train services
What we get from Southeastern isn't good enough, I'm pressing for improvements and longer trains.
Earlier this year, I met the Secretary of State for Transport Patrick McLoughlin to ask for better transport links to Eltham. He confirmed that the current Labour MP Clive Efford had raised the issue before the last election but strangely, not since and although two reports have been commissioned by the council on the matter since 2005, Transport for London confirmed that their questions had not been responded to.
A new community hospital.
This Government has kept its promise to Eltham with the new facility opening in 2015 and continues to invest in health facilities in the area.
I campaigned for £3m of funding to be used to create an urgent care centre in Eltham, reducing the need for residents to attend the A&E at the QEII and will continue to fight for well funded and high quality public services.
Better quality social housing.
We need affordable homes for young people and families, not more tower blocks of flats. The standard of council housing is a particular concern for many people in Eltham, with many I have spoken to complaining of damp, squalid conditions.
Furthermore, the council's own forecasts in August suggested that the figure of 2,586 council-owned homes which are set to miss the Decent Homes Standard in April will rise further the following year.
This is completely unacceptable. Paying lower rent for council-owned properties should never mean having to put up with sub-standard conditions and housing in Eltham has been neglected by Labour as an issue for too long.
I want to hear from you about the issues that matter to you, so please like my page on Facebook, follow me on Twitter or get in touch with me directly. I look forward to hearing from you!
