Dr Juna Sathian

I’m proud to be the Blakelaw Labour candidate for the local elections on May 5th. I live in Blakelaw, I’m a university lecturer, and a scientist by profession. My five-year-old twin boys go to the local primary school, and my husband is a coach at the local football club. I’m a Community Councillor and have worked on several projects within the area, particularly regarding tackling Anti-Social Behaviour.  I have organised events, such as the Summer Fun Day last year. I conducted a resident’s questionnaire and as a result have started two new projects, one within Blakelaw and another within North Fenham, both aimed at enhancing our community spaces.

Along with Councillor Linda Hobson, I started the local weekly litter-picking sessions on Blakelaw Park. I am passionate about making our area a better place to live, including feeling safer at home and out in the community. I will work to bring employment and training opportunities to the area, provide support to residents in need and improve living standards.

I also firmly believe that people must have their voices heard and get involved with local decision-making; if elected as the Labour Councillor for Blakelaw, I will work hard to do this. I’d like to thank Councillor Avery for all he has done during his time as a Blakelaw Councillor and wish him good luck.
