A life-long liberal, Sue was elected as a Broadland District Councillor for Aylsham in 2018. Currently engaged in part-time voluntary work with a local advice agency, Sue lives with her husband, has two adult sons and a work history of running businesses, science at UEA and HR at Norfolk County Council.
As a District Councillor, Sue is deputy Leader of the Lib Dem Group of 12, serving on the Overview and Scrutiny Committee, Licensing and Regulatory Committee, Economic Success Panel and the Service Improvement and Efficiency Committee.
Attending meetings and staying on top of issues raised by local people are Sue's priority and she is committed to seeking and listening carefully to residents' opinion so that she can truly represent local views.
The fundamental reason for Sue being involved in politics is that she believes that everyone, regardless of background, should have the same opportunities in life, at school, in the workplace and in the community and that this begins with tolerance and understanding.
