A Message From Dean

Thank you for visiting my website. I am proud to be the Member of Parliament for Watford and I am passionate about our community. Throughout the pandemic, I have been tirelessly working to help constituents and local businesses navigate

these difficult times. It helps that I am from a working-class background, as I like nothing more than rolling up my sleeves to get the job done!

I have been focussed on working for Watford during the pandemic, which has ranged

from tackling homelessness to supporting local jobs, successfully lobbying for funding for Watford General and organisations across our town, through to launching my mental health first aid awareness scheme. You will find a snapshot of my work for Watford across this website. I am clear that none of these achievements would be possible without the support of our amazing local community, which I am incredibly grateful for.     

Throughout the year I have been an active volunteer, so please do contact me

if you feel I could support at any events or meetings; I will always attend if possible.

If you also need general assistance with local matters relating to

Watford, please do not hesitate to contact me via my office at any time

– full details can be found on the contact page. In fact, my team and I

have already completed over 11,000 case work files helping local

residents, groups and businesses.

I would love to keep you updated about the various initiatives

that I am involved in and so please do consider signing up

to my newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time. 

Thank you!
