Mike said: “I’ve enjoyed representing Priory Ward since 2009 so I feel I am familiar with the issues that affect residents. I also know many people from my time as Headmaster of Rosemary Musker High School. My wife, Corinne and I are long-time Thetford residents, and I am committed to making Thetford a better place for all, and that’s what I will continue to work for if re-elected. We need more Labour councillors to campaign on national issues such as the cost of living and low wages, decent education for all, the environment and for a properly funded NHS. We will also need to fight on local issues that threaten your future or reduce your quality of life. As your local councillor I will always listen to your concerns and act where it is possible to do so. We can make Thetford a better place. For example, the Charles Burrell Centre, where I am a Founder Trustee, has created jobs, provided training, entertainment and recreation, and helped people set up new businesses”.
