We chat about what he loves about Northumberland, some of the policy he’s feeling excited about, and I communicate a few concerns I’ve heard about Conservative policy, which David gives his perspective on.

If you want to reach out to David, which I highly recommend doing (he’s super approachable and *BONUS* has a very cute dog who hangs out with him at his office), you can find his contact info here!

Check out my conversation with Val Russell and Lucy Caldwell, the director and lead actress from Northumberland Players‘ rendition of Silent Sky!

“The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, Silent Sky explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications. Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.

Silent Sky is the poignant tale of a woman’s dedication to the stars and the human touch that makes life under the cast sky beautiful and timeless. It is a beautiful and insightful piece of theatre.”
