My political career started 36 years ago and I am presently the Leader of Leicestershire County Council. It is a great honour and a lot of hard work but I really enjoy it. I also serve on many outside bodies representing Leicestershire County Council.
I pride myself on being able to work with all the district leaders in Leicestershire. I have regular meetings with our local MP Andrew Bridgen where we discuss issues or problems which have been presented to me at my surgery or to Andrew himself.
