Alex was drawn into politics by a passion to boost life chances for people from all walks of life in Cheltenham. This was the driving mission behind Alex's cyber vision.
So Alex has welcomed GCC's announcement of a £1.5million Levelling Up Together grant scheme for the areas in Gloucestershire that are in the bottom decile of income per capita nationally.
The fund means that community groups and organisations in St. Mark's and St Paul's can apply for a share of the £1.5million for projects that will improve wellbeing, skills and employability for those who live in these areas.
Alex said: "I believe passionately in levelling up Cheltenham. Long before it was being talked about nationally, I spoke about the urgent moral mission to spread opportunity in our town. So I welcome GCC's introduction of a £1.5million grant scheme to spread opportunity and to provide a better future for people all across Cheltenham."
