Political career

I have always been a supporter of the Conservatives but only got actively involved in politics when work and family commitments allowed. This was when I first stood for the Abbey Ward in October 2010. I was re-elected in 2011.

Hobbies / Fun Fact

I enjoy socialising and like to get involved in all sports sometimes to unpredictable levels. I enjoy the theatre and the arts. My greatest influences were originally Monty Python and now my wife Pat.

Achievements

I have been very active as a Councillor for East Staffs being Chairman of the Scrutiny Board for two years / planning committee member, Chairman of relevant RBVS scrutiny committee and served on the East Staffs Sports Council. I have aided the development of sports clubs in and around Uttoxeter through grant funding. As a local Parish Councillor I have given support through planning and capital projects. This has made improvements to Leigh and Bramshall village halls and saw the return of the original red phone box back to Bramshall.
