Being a county councillor offers you the chance to debate and take the lead on issues of local and national importance.
I represent East Sussex County Council on the South East Local Enterprise Partnership – one of 39 partnerships set up across the country by the government to be the key bodies determining strategic economic priorities while making investments and delivering activities to drive growth and create local jobs. I, along with my county colleagues, am committed to promoting employment and business opportunities across the county.
I will be watching the Council to ensure that we deliver our priorities at a time of reducing resources and increasing demand by working as One Council and in partnership with others, with a clear focus on achieving the best outcomes we can for East Sussex.
More about me
I was first elected councillor for Winchelsea, now the Rye & Eastern Rother division in 1997. The name may have changed but this area still has a shortage of regeneration opportunities and needs a better infrastructure to develop.
But how did I get here?
I was born and raised in this area and I wanted to change things for the better for people living in the east of the county.
I originally worked on local issues as a parish councillor. The chairman of Icklesham Parish Council convinced me that councillors at all levels can make a difference.
Having lived here all my life, I felt I had the ability to help others share the way of life in the east of the county.
Working as a full-time councillor and Leader meant I had to give up my plumbing and heating business. But council business is very rewarding and I have come to realise you can achieve anything if you stick at it.
I am proud that refocusing social services away from long-term care to intermediate care has helped a lot of people to stay in their own homes for longer.
My home life
My wife and I live in Pett, East Sussex and our daughter and three granddaughters live nearby.
My spare time
We keep horses and dogs and enjoy the country life.
