I have been in local politics since 2009, since retiring from Banking, and am currently the County Councillor for St Nicholas Division in Stevenage, and a Borough Councillor for Woodfield Ward in the same town – I live in the middle of both areas.
I am currently the Leader of the Conservative Councillor Group on Stevenage Borough Council as well as being the official Leader of the Opposition to the ruling Labour executive. In this role I scrutinise Labour's policies and decisions as well as holding them to account on behalf of residents.
I also serve on the Conservative Cabinet at Hertfordshire County Council. As the Executive Member for Highways and Transport, I am responsible in Hertfordshire for the safety and maintenance of our highways, and new network infrastructure. I also cover transport strategy, including our Integrated Transport Plan.
In support to the local community, I have enjoyed being a governor of The Leys Primary and Nursery School since 2009.
In my spare time I like golf, exercise, travel, theatre and music, interests which my wife shares with me, and she is also heavily involved with our local St Nicholas church.
