Additional Information

I have been elected as a County Councillor for the electoral division of Holsworthy Rural. 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 care greatly about the rural community for which I am a part.  I wish to support this community in all matters for which it can benefit.


My priorities are:-

•Community Safety

•Working in partnership

•Building a sustainable rural economy

•Caring for those most vulnerable
