Osman has lived in the Southampton area for over 20 years. As a father to a 14 year old son and a 5 year old daughter, he is committed to enabling and leaving a safe and sustainable future for the next generation.
“With a climate emergency on our hands, I am deeply concerned about the legacy we will leave behind.
“It’s clear that urgent changes must be driven by government and local authorities if we’re to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 and avert a potential climate catastrophe.”
Osman would like to encourage investment in sustainable energy production and promote the use of electric vehicles.
As a chartered IT professional and fellow of the British Computer Society, he is acutely aware of the dangers to children and the vulnerable online. Osman feels that more should be introduced through government policies that can filter down to local authorities and to parents.
“We must help to drive through changes that can lead to a tangible difference in online safety and use technology to create a sustainable future for all.”

She is passionate about healthcare and has already been involved in projects to improve the care for people living with dementia. She started a dementia action group in Portswood, has run two successful dementia festivals and has recently been elected as a governor for University Hospital Southampton.
She has stood for local elections for the Portswood ward and has campaign with the Green Party for better access to the waterfront, better mental health services and has actively opposed the expansion of Southampton Airport.
Katherine is focused on improving air quality, ensuring affordable housing and building a sustainable economy that does not damage our environment.
She will also campaign for equal approaches to mental and physical health and champion school environments that provide educations for life without anxiety-inducing testing.
Katherine regularly attends St Denys Church and says her strong sense of faith underpins everything she does.
In her spare time, she volunteers for a number of groups and runs with the Solent Running Sisters, completing a half marathon this year. Katherine also practices yoga and often goes cycling in the New Forest.
As part of a greater national alliance we are not standing a candidate in this constituency.
