I have Lived in Congleton for the past 14 years.
Why I am standing for Reform UK?
I started off my career as an officer in the RAF having obtained a master’s degree in engineering and then worked in the IT world. Firstly, in sales and marketing and then in business management. I worked for Sperry Univac and McDonnell Douglas Information Systems as a sales manager, Siemens Nixdorf as a divisional director and NeXT computer (a direct report to Steve Jobs) as Managing Director of the UK Northern Europe and EMEA. Following that I was an owner director of a software business which was sold and then a founder of a Business-to-Business sales and marketing agency which is still active. So basically, I am a businessman and not a career politician.
Apart from voting NO in Wilson's referendum and Conservative for most of my life my first real involvement in politics was campaigning for the 2016 referendum. In 2019 I joined the Brexit party soon after Nigel formed it and campaigned locally for the European Elections. I then was appointed as the candidate for Macclesfield in the 2019 Election but was stood down by the party and was re-assigned to the Wallasey constituency at the last minute and managed to come 3rd beating the Lib Dems.
After the debacle of the Boris/Truss/Sunak nightmare I joined Reform and was appointed as PPC for Congleton.
There is no doubt in my mind that the time has come to sweep away the current political landscape. Ever since the demise of Margaret Thatcher this country has gone from bad to worse. Neither the Tory or Labour parties have really got to grips with the key issues and it really is time for REFORM.
If elected I promise to faithfully represent all constituents no matter which party, they support without favor. I strongly believe politics begins at home and the first task of an MP is to be there for their constituency to take up local issues and to work to resolve them. I will set up a local office which will be open for constituents during normal working hours and on one day every weekend. I will hold regular weekly surgeries. I will hold these in different locations as the constituency is geographically large and your MP needs to be accessible to everyone.
