My front-line role

I am the Liberal Democrat County Councillor for St Albans Central division which comprises of Clarence and St. Peter's wards. The ‘Your Community’ section provides local service information, news, events, and contacts about the area.

I represent the interests of around 13,000 residents in my division and in so doing work with the local district council (St Albans).

My County Council responsibilities

I have sat on the County Council since 1993 and have been Leader of my group for two periods, the most recent ending in 2012. 

I currently sit on the Public Health and Localism Cabinet Panel.

Roles on outside bodies

I am Deputy Leader of the Liberal Democrat Group on the Local Government Association and also a Member of the Executive of the Local Government Association.

Personal, professional and political details

I was born in 1959 in Coventry and have lived at various times in Hereford, Doncaster, Pinner, Brussels, Northwood and Westminster. I moved with my wife to St Albans in 1985. I have two children who both attended local schools.

I was educated at Merchant Taylors’ School, Northwood and at Corpus Christi College, Oxford where I read Literae Humaniores (Classics) and took an upper second.

I qualified as a chartered accountant in 1984 and worked subsequently in accountancy training, much of it self-employed. I have also done consultancy work for the IDeA.

I was first a district council candidate for the Liberal Democrats in St Albans in 1986 and 1987 but turned to parliamentary elections in 1990. In 1992 I turned in a good second place in Hertford and Stortford. I stood in Hitchin and Harpenden in 1997.

In 1999 I was on the East of England list for the European elections and again in 2004 (where I was placed second).
