I was first elected to The District Council in May 1995 to represent the Parish of Stoke Gabriel. Since then we have had two boundary reviews and I now represent the three member ward of Dartmouth and East Dart which covers the area from Townstal, Dartmouth, Kingswear, Hillhead and Stoke Gabriel.

I have lived in South Devon all my life and in Stoke Gabriel for over 30 years. I have spent most of my working life involved in Rural Affairs, Tourism and The Environment in which we live and work. I have served on most committees of the Council and have just been elected its Chairman for a third time and I will do my best to serve the office to which I have been elected.

I believe that our main objective should be to make the South Hams a better place in which to live, work and to visit. I will strive to make this possible whilst being mindful that the Council has to do more for less by way of services and finance. I am mindful of ensuring we have a balanced budget each financial year and no overspends.
