About Suzie Ferguson

I am a Reading-based Chartered Engineer currently assigned to Dubai with my son, Brannon, and my daughter, Skye, by my employer of 10 years; Foster Wheeler. My home is in Tidmarsh, where my husband, and the cats, are still based, but I had to take this assignment as we could no longer afford to live in Berkshire with 2 children under 3 years of age. After 6 months of upheaval, readjustment and reflection, I passionately want to help others in a similar, or worse, situation than we were 6 months ago. We are very lucky that I have had this opportunity to dig us out of our hole. By April 2015 we should be debt free. I want to bring that opportunity to everyone in Reading West. Nobody should have to struggle every hour of the day and night and still not be able to make ends meet. Cheaper homes, food and transportation do not exist in Berkshire, we need to find sensible and sustainable solutions to lift hard working people and families out of poverty and fairly reward hard work and initiative. The purpose of government should be to serve the people. Our government is hopelessly out of touch with what matters in peoples real lives. In my opinion, engaging with real people is the first step to improving how our society works for the benefit of all. I need to know what will make your life better. I have lots of good ideas, but I need you to tell me what the big issues are for you. And I need you to grant me the opportunity to represent you in parliment so that we have a chance for your voice from Reading West to be heard.
