Brenda LINK - Sammy BARRY

What made you want to stand for council?

Brenda: I want to stand for council again because I have enjoyed my time trying to help people in my local community and feel there is still a lot more work to do trying to make Highfield a better place to live.

Sammy: As a youth worker I have found working within the local community has allowed me to get a grip on what the issues really are and how residents feel. I enjoy talking to people and also seek to help where possible.
