I am honoured to be standing in East Chesterton as a Labour candidate for the City Council elections on Thursday 3 May.
I was born in Kerala in India and my ambition was always to study law and be a lawyer and fight for injustice within the society. But I had to leave studies at the age of 19 to look after my family members and started work in a tea room. Fourteen years ago, I moved to Cambridge with my wife and I took the opportunity to return to my studies. I am now working in a law firm in Cambridge as a trainee solicitor. I live on Elizabeth Way in East Chesterton where I have brought up my family,
I am proud of the work of the Labour led City Council putting equality and social justice at the heart of its priorities for Cambridge and I hope to use my skills and experience to be an effective champion for all residents in East Chesterton as a ward councillor.
Living as I do in the ward, I know that it is a great place to live. If elected to the City Council I will work with the other ward councillors, the City Council and the police to tackle problems like anti-social behaviour and poor driving on Fen Road and the High Street which affect residents. I’ll also be fighting to keep vital services from the County Council and Magistrates Court locally for residents in Cambridge.
Don’t forget that on Thursday 3 May you will have two votes to elect two Labour councillors in East Chesterton. I’ll be out with Councillor Gerri Bird, Carla McQueen and the Labour team knocking on doors across the ward to hear your views and how we can work together to make East Chesterton even better.
Please give Labour both of your votes on 3 May and elect a strong team for East Chesterton.
