As a candidate Suzanna’s quiet and understated demeanor belies both a somewhat dogged determination to ensure peoples voices are heard, and an uncanny way of translating policy into meaningful everyday scenarios. It was this determination that drove her to help uncover the issues with waiting lists at a local hospital facilitating changed outcomes for the thousands of patients effected. Whilst her regular work with other political parties demonstrates her view that some issues are above party politics and need collaboration.
Having lived and worked in the East Midlands for nearly two decades Suzanna has a keen understanding of the important issues, not least within one of the region’s largest sectors - logistics where she has worked for pan-European companies. More recently Suzanna has run her own business joining the many hundreds of thousands of regional small business owners given her an insight into the daily challenges faced and the importance of maintaining free trade with our closest neighbours.
Growing up with and still having a hearing impairment has also driven Suzanna to regularly campaign on equality and inclusion issues. As she has shown throughout her working life her hearing has not held her back instead it has been a catalyst for trying to understand the different barriers people face and helping remove them.
Suzanna genuinely is a candidate that understands the needs and aspirations of everyday people and works her hardest to help people achieve them.
