Candidate for Fairford and Lechlade on Thames
Phone: 07753 743076
Tony has lived in Northleach since 1989 and has involved himself in charity organisations and community activities throughout that time.
After spending 15 years with Northleach and Fosse Lions Club, Tony became a Scout Leader, spending 8 years as an Explorer Leader and then a District Explorer Scout Commissioner, before becoming North Cotswolds District Commissioner for all scouting activity in 2017, creating new groups to meet demand.
He decided to stand for the District Council to improve services for local people and his priorities include:
- Improving youth facilities - young people have borne the brunt of cuts to local government, especially in rural areas. He wants to make the District Council proactive in improving provision for young people in our towns and villages.
- Better infrastructure - terrible roads, poor broadband and weak bus services hinder active relationships and damage the local economy.
- Improving parking - He wants much better provision for parking across the Cotswolds.
As the Cabinet Member for the Economy and Skills, Tony has been delivering on these priorities and now wants to challenge the Gloucestershire Conservatives over their colossal mismanagement of children's services and their inability to fix our ailing roads.
