I am a semi-retired small business owner as well as a District and Town Councillor.
I have been a Carer for my wife for the past 9 years, which has enabled me to gain an invaluable insight into the challenges caring for a loved one with serious health issues.
At District Council I am shadow portfolio holder for planning and regulatory services and at Town Council I serve on every committee. I am passionate about creating employment opportunities in the District.
I am also a trustee for 2 local charities concerned with homelessness and mental health.
Eileen moved to Deal in 1969 when her husband came to work with the ferries. Their children attended local schools.
Eileen has had 30 years of experience as a Labour Councillor. She has three times been elected Mayor of Deal.
Eileen has been a passionate environmentalist for many years. She was worked to reduce pollution, protect the environment, invest in the green economy and championed supporting the health and wellbeing of young people.
Eileen is also a member of the Co-operative Party and she is keen to promote its aims, values and community work.
