She is a firm believer in community-based solutions when it comes to answering to, and providing for the needs of communities.

Ms Roberts said: "People who are being impacted by decisions need to be at the centre of decision making.

"The ongoing cost of living crisis continues to burden peoples’ lives, coupled with promises that keep going unfulfilled. It's clearly time for a change.

“I'm looking forward to serving our community and putting the trust back into politics - with the actions to match.”
