Catherine Hutchinson, St. Paul [Fulflood / Romsey Road / University]
I have lived in St Paul's Ward for 21 years. My children were all born and have grown up here. I have worked locally in Early Years since 2001, managing pre-schools and my own Forest School. Through my work I have become aware of the pressures facing families and the inequalities hidden within our prosperous city, including in St Paul’s. I joined the Labour Party in 2015, inspired to help make my community a fairer one, close the gaps in quality of life here and to do things in a cleaner, more sustainable way. I believe we need a Labour voice on the Council to promote these issues and to represent all the Labour Party Members supporters and voters of St Paul's!
