Personal Register of Interests
My front-line role
I am the County Councillor for the St Albans South division, which must be one of the most varied divisions in Hertfordshire. I represent St Albans Abbey and much of the St Albans conservation area, St Michael’s village, the Verulam estate round the Waitrose supermarket, the very diverse Cottonmill area and the historic area by Riverside Road. In all I represent around 14,000 residents.
I am always out and about in the patch and try to attend residents’ association meetings, but I also keep in touch through regular FOCUS newsletters and e-newsletters as well. The 'Your community' section provides local service information, news, events, and contacts about the area.
My County Council responsibilities
I was first elected to the County Council in 2013 and I currently serve as a member of the Highways and Waste Management Cabinet Panel, as well as being the main opposition spokesperson on environmental matters.
Personal, professional and political details
In my business career I worked in the oil industry, telecommunications and public transport. I was Director of Public Affairs at both BT Group plc and at Transport for London.
I have lived in Hertfordshire almost continuously since 1981. Before that I lived in places as varied as London, Berlin, New York and New Orleans. I am married to Francesca who runs her own architectural practice and we have three children.
I am Vice Chair of Trustees for St Albans Bereavement Network, I have some involvement in St Albans Credit Union, I am an active patron of WombTwin, and I am also active in my church.
