Jenny was born and brought up in Sutton Coldfield and is now raising her own three young boys in the town. She actively campaigned to remain in the EU, stood in the European Elections and is now standing against a destructive Brexit, anxious about the damage it would cause to our economy and the consequent impact on our ability to fund our NHS, schools and public services.
As a parent and governor at a local infant school, Jenny is passionate about education, concerned about cuts to school funding and the pressures that excessive testing places on our children. She is a founding Trustee of FOLIO Sutton Coldfield, which runs a range of educational events in the town centre library, as well as a Director of the Little Green Bookworm community play-café. Being interested in environmental issues, Jenny has instigated a Sutton Coldfield campaign to prevent climate change and is keen to see greater promotion and use of the wonderful natural resource we have on our doorstep in Sutton Park.
Outside of politics, Jenny has a business background, working since 2000 as a Forensic Accountant, striving to combat fraud and corruption. Honesty, integrity and accountability are extremely important to her and she wants to bring trust back into politics.
Jenny says “For me, being involved in politics is about supporting everyone to make the most of their lives. I’m devastated by the damage being done to our country by the current government, so I’m fighting for the Liberal Democrat values of fairness, freedom and tolerance.”
