I was first elected to South Derbyshire District Council on 3rd May 2007 to represent the Linton Ward.

Before being elected to the Council, I had a career in marketing and sales, mostly with Bass in Burton-on-Trent and have lived in South Derbyshire for over 25 years.

I was elected Leader of the Council in 2007 and worked to ensure that the Council delivers better services and lower costs.  I also have the pleasure and privilege of representing South Derbyshire on a number of County and National bodies.

I have always tried to work with the communities of Castle Gresley, Cauldwell, Drakelow, Linton and Rosliston and their parish councils and meeting to help build a safer and better place for families to live and work.

Re-elected in 2015, I look forward to four more years.

I am married to Heather, South Derbyshire's Member of Parliament and we have a daughter Harriet, who is a solicitor.
