Candidates in Headington


Mohammed Altaf Khan (LibDem)
Altaf-Khan has been living and working in OX3 for more than two decades and is very in touch with the area, the people and their issues. Altaf is a family man and all his children have been born, bred and schooled locally. He was elected as an Oxfordshire County councillor in 2005 for Headington & Marston Division and has been an Oxford City councillor since 2006 for Headington Hill & Northway. As Shadow Cabinet Member for Community Safety (Oxfordshire County Council), he undertook major reviews like “Improving Recruitment and Sustainment of Retained Fire-fighters” and “Improving Oxfordshire Registration Service”. Altaf is a friendly and approachable councillor. He has a close working relationship with both fellow Oxford City councillors David and Ruth in Headington and wants to make the area cleaner and greener while keeping a focus on planning and community engagement so that the council listens to local people.

Theodora Dickinson (Con)
Originally from the inner-city London borough of Lewisham, I have been living and studying in Oxford for nearly three years, and currently live locally – in Barton. I have been brought up with an ethos of working hard and wanting to get on – and I want to work hard for Headington. My mum runs a small business, so I am keen to fight for local shops and small businesses in Headington.
If elected I will fight for a council tax freeze so that hardworking people can keep more of their own money, and so that our city can enjoy a share of these millions of pounds to invest in our local area. I will ensure that potholes in Headington are fixed in a timely manner.
On Theodora’s twitter account she describes herself as a “Tea- and Train-loving Tory”. [1][4]

Published author on art history and Spanish Civil War. Currently living in Marston. Interests include longevity, archaeology, the history of art, biography and the environment. Keen member of the Green Party and my pet hate is noise; I long to live somewhere far, far from main roads. [2]
