"I am editor-in-chief for the progressive online paper, West Country Voices, spokesperson for Devon for Europe and the author of a number of books, including one on young climate change activists. Before that I worked for more than 20 years in financial asset management at director level.
I've got involved with South Devon Primary because I want to help mobilise people to engage with democracy so that real change can happen. Too many people feel there’s no point voting, that all politicians are the same, but we face too many crucial issues now – climate crisis, cost of living, the NHS, attacks on human rights etc - to stand idly by and let stuff be done to us.
Time to get stuck in for positive change! People power!”
