I've lived locally in Orchard Park for four years. Ours is a forward-looking community. It would be a great honour to represent Histon, Impington & Orchard Park. Khadija Arsalan
My name is Khadija Arsalan, and I am standing to be your County Councillor. I have lived in Cambridge for ten years, and in Orchard Park for nearly four. Our area is full of diverse, professional, and forward-looking people. It will be a great honour for me to represent you.
My principal focus would be to address rising mental health challenges through targeted support in the current pandemic and economic crisis. I will make sure that the County Council invests in well-paid jobs, youth clubs, supporting local businesses, and keeping our environment clean and green.
I am a linguist by training, and currently working in an admin role on a zero-hour contract at the University of Cambridge.
I believe in an equal and just society. I have campaigned actively in Cambridge to protect jobs, rent control, and to end food poverty.
I look forward to meeting and listening to all of you during the election campaign.
