Maureen Turner

I have had a long-standing interest in the democratic structures of this country at all levels. I would welcome the opportunity of being involved at the local level as a councillor.

I believe that the policies of the Liberal Democrats have a proven record of delivering efficient and fair local government that is in the best interests of the whole community and would like to work to increase the proportion of Liberal Democrats in the Council.

I have a great deal of experience in education as a teacher and a manager. And also as a Deputy Team Leader of the Bilingual Learners Support Service (now SEMASS).

I have worked in many Southampton schools. I have been a Bench Chairman in Magistrates Courts, as well as chair on various other committees.
