Time for Change


What is important to you is important to me.

I will speak truth to power and fight for your interests.

World Peace, Fight Hate and Discrimination

It is important to fight hate and discrimination in all areas. We have to ensure the safety, stability, and prosperity of all people, fostering cooperation, development, and the realisation of our shared human potential. We cannot allow our leaders to continue peddling the politics of fear and division.

NHS and Healthcare

As a healthcare professional, I am passionate about our NHS. Our national treasure requires urgent attention to improve efficiency services and working conditions. I am committed to implementing clear policies for improving GP appointments and support for greater funding.

Cost of Living

Everyone is feeling the pinch at the moment, but sadly, for some, it is more severe than that. In 2019, Leicester was the 18th most deprived area out of 316 Local Authorities, with one in five people facing the fundamental dilemma of whether to eat or heat. Tackling the Cost Of Living Crisis for the people of Leicester is one of my priorities.

Housing

Addressing the shortage of habitable properties and the unacceptable waiting lists, which can stretch up to five years, is a scandal. I am committed to tackling these issues along with the problem of rogue landlords.

Youth and Education

Our youth are our future, and we must ensure we give them the best opportunity to thrive. Schemes that enhance young people's skills will be promoted, and avenues to improve employability will be explored. Special attention will be paid to the less abled and disadvantaged.

Business and Economic Development

As a small business owner in our community, I understand the hurdles of entrepreneurship firsthand. It's imperative that we implement clear and vigorous strategies to enhance our city's business landscape. I am dedicated to advocating for local businesses and revitalising our international reputation to position Leicester as a desirable hub for commerce.

Community Safety and Crime Prevention

Creating safe and harmonious communities is a shared aspiration for all of us. While increased Police visibility is crucial, it's just one aspect of achieving this goal. Collaborating with outreach programs in schools and colleges to educate about the risks of crime, particularly drug-related offences and knife violence, is equally vital. Additionally, fostering open and amicable dialogues with all segments of our diverse city population is essential. Our commonality far outstrips our differences.

Climate Emergency

A genuine commitment to work with national and local partners to develop renewable energy projects and simultaneously promote initiatives that boost employment and productivity. We have one world, and we are running out of time to save it

My roots run deep in this city, having been raised, educated, and now working here. Leicester South isn’t just a place where I conduct business; it’s my heart, home, and commitment.


For over 15 years, I have been privileged to serve our community through my award-winning optical practice and my community work.

This has given me a unique perspective on our city’s challenges and opportunities. I have witnessed firsthand the struggles of hard-working individuals and families as they try to make ends meet in the face of a rising cost of living. I have seen the strain on our NHS as it copes with increasing demand and limited resources. I have watched local businesses, our economy’s backbone, struggle to survive in an increasingly competitive market. I have seen the impact of neglect on our environment as we fail to take the necessary steps to protect and preserve it for future generations. But I also believe that Leicester South is a city of immense potential. We are a diverse and vibrant community, rich in culture and history. We have a strong sense of community spirit and a willingness to work together to overcome challenges. I believe that by harnessing these strengths and working together, we can build a brighter future for our city.

As your representative, I am committed to putting the needs of Leicester South first. I will not be beholden to party politics or special interests. My loyalty lies with you, the people of Leicester South. I will listen to your concerns, advocate for your needs, and work tirelessly to ensure that our city is a place where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. I am passionate about creating a fairer, more inclusive, and prosperous Leicester South. I believe that by working together, we can make this vision a reality. I am excited to embark on this journey with you, and I am confident that together, we can build a brighter future for Leicester South.
