I have lived in Ramsden Heath for nearly 30 years with my wife Jacquie. Our son David attended Downham School & KEGS and I was a Governor of Downham for many years. I am delighted that Downham School has now been updated and extended and pleased to have played a part in securing the finance needed to do this work.
First elected to Chelmsford Council in 1999, I have been honoured to be Leader of the Council for eight years and in that time have overseen the transformation of the town and the development of the rural areas of the Borough. My particular speciality is property and finance and residents will be aware that this year, for the first time ever, Chelmsford City Council is not increasing Council Tax, despite the coalition government slashing Chelmsford’s Grant by 16%.
I have been a Parish Councillor for South Hanningfield for many years and also attend Parish Council meetings at Stock and Margaretting when time permits, working in partnership with my fellow ward Councillor Ian Grundy. I also produce the Parish Newsletter and Jacquie runs the popular over-60’s Luncheon Club at the Village Hall where she is a committee member.
