Appointments to outside bodies
I live with my wife and teenage children along with a menagerie of animals (dogs, cats, pigs) in South Herefordshire.
Over the last 15 years I have started, build up and sold two businesses. Since the beginning of 2014 I have enjoyed a ‘mid life career break’ but now I am keen to put something back into the community. I wanted to become a councillor because I want to encourage individuals and communities to believe in themselves and to realise that often they can change things for the better.
We face a challenging few years both as a county and as a country with growing demands on budgets. We need to focus on our key priorities (young people, old/vulnerable, local economy) and ask our parishes to take on some of the more local issues. If we want to spend more then first we need to earn more, and I hope that with my background in business, I can help with this.
I am proud to serve as a ward councillor and will represent my ward to the best of my ability.
