Borough Councillor for Sherrards
I was elected in May 2019 and represent Sherrards Ward. I regard it as a privilege to serve my local community.
I formerly worked in Personal Injury Law for over 30 years, dealing with claims on behalf of people who had suffered serious and catastrophic injuries. Throughout my whole working life, I have been used to helping people with their problems.
I took voluntary redundancy in 2017 and bought the coffee shop at Welwyn Garden City Station in 2018, where I now work. I am active with Network Rail in seeking maintenance improvements the station desperately needs. I have been working closely with Lib Dem Councillor Malcolm Cowan.
I was born and brought up in East London and Essex and came to first work in Welwyn Garden City in 1995. I have lived in Sherrards for almost 17 years since 2003. I am married to Michelle, a teacher and have three children, who went to Templewood Primary School.
I now sit on the following committees:
- Planning (known as DMC)
- Estate Management Panel (EMP)
- Constitutional Committee
- Campus West
I also until very recently sat on the Climate Change Committee
I still believe that the following issues are extremely important for our community :
- Youth provision
- Preserving heritage and green spaces (good quality social and affordable housing with proper infrastructure).
- Improving our environment
- Saving Gosling Sports Centre and Ski slope.
- Ensuring an open, caring and listening Council
- Dealing with road and parking problems
I am always available to deal with your problems and you can contact me using the details below.
