From a very early age, I’ve always been very community orientated. From growing up in Poland to moving to the UK with my family, I’ve always cared about being involved in supporting my local community.
Since I have moved to Watford, I was passionate to get involved with local activities and wanted to help improve the town my family and I call home to be even a better place to live in.
I’ve always liked to break stereotypes. I think people have an idea that Eastern European citizens living in the UK are somehow disengaged from the place they live in and not interested in becoming a part of that community. I’ve never felt like that and I wanted to prove the opposite. I feel the Eastern European community are part of where they live and work and deserve to be heard in their local council. After some thinking, in 2016, I decided to run as a borough councillor and it is an enormous honour to be the first ever Polish councillor at Watford Borough Council. It is an even greater honour to have been re-elected to the role in 2018.
I’ve always enjoyed promoting the idea of community and helping people and being a councillor is a great way of doing just that.
Being a councillor also gives me a chance to change people’s lives for the better, whoever they are and wherever they’re from. I love the casework part of my job. A typical day could be helping to clear a bit of fly tipping, helping get funding for community projects or helping someone get better quality local housing. No two days are the same.
If you love your town and want to make it a better place to live, this is really the job for you.
