It's a great opportunity to join my two other candidates Greg Morgan and Clive Tattum to be the Conservative team for the new Chorley North East Ward.
I've previous experience on both Chorley and Lancashire County councils.
I was previously elected onto Chorley Council from 2000 to 2002 and from 2003 through to 2011. And on Lancashire County Council for four years from May 2009 up to 2013.
In my previous employment I worked in electrical retail, the majority of which was with Norweb until their high street retail shops closed in 1997. Latterly I worked with other retailers and finally with Plumbs Sound and Vision in Chorley town centre until the family business decided to close.
