Born and brought up in Sandwell, David lives in the ward he seeks to represent. This means that he has direct first hand knowledge of what is happening in Wednesbury South and the issues which confront its residents.
The father of 9 year old twins and an 8 year old son, David, like many Wednesbury parents, is concerned that local schools should give kids the best possible start in life. He is also troubled that local play areas for children appear to be neglected by the council.
David appreciates that fly-tipping is a local menace and creates eyesores. He wants to see a stricter enforcement of the law against this and wants the council to better advertise its service for the collection of large household items and offer payment holidays to encourage use of the service. The single waste site in Sandwell is inadequate for the size of the borough.
Working as a driver in the NHS particularly during the pandemic has meant that David has had to work collaboratively in the common interest. Skills which, with his concern for people and motivation to work to better things, he offers.
David is a community representative to Riverside Housing which involves liaison between tenants and residents and the housing management body.
