From May 2006-May 2010 I was elected as a Local Councillor for the Netteswell ward in Harlow. I lost my seat in the May 2010 election but returned to the Council in May 2011 as ward Councillor for Sumners and Kingsmoor. I served as Chair of the Select Committee (Resources, Housing and Governance), a member of the Licencing Committee, the Housing Standards Board and Chair of the Theatre Working Panel for Harlow District Council. During my time on the Council I undertook training for my Scrutiny role. I served as Chairman of the Council from May 2013-2014. I did not seek Re-election in May 2014 as I had moved out of the area to Maldon. I was Deputy Chair Membership and Finance for Harlow Conservative Association 2011.-2013. I served as Chairman of the Association for 2 years, when my move to Maldon meant I had to resign. I am currently the Treasurer for the Harlow Conservative Association and Maldon Conservatives.
