Additional Information

I have been elected as a County Councillor for the electoral division of Salcombe. I intend to serve the interests of all residents, regardless of political persuasion.


I am, however, a member of the Conservative Party and take an active interest in a number of national and local campaigns. It would not be appropriate for me to use this website to promote these campaigns though you can visit related external websites by selecting some of the links to be found on these pages.


I became a Councillor out of a sense of duty and in the belief I have something to offer.  I wholly believe in Public Service for the benefit of all.


My priorities are to serve my community wherever possible to the best of my ability.
