Paul has wide experience and a range of skills he can bring to the County Councillor role.

“I stand for the Green Party because I want to live in a sustainable and fair society in which we manage the world’s resources responsibly and treat each other with care and respect. I want us to leave to our children a world worth living in – and we can start at a local level. I believe in evidence-based policy making – we should make decisions because we have good evidence they will be beneficial, and not on the basis of personal whim or political dogma, which seems to be the modern fashion. If elected, I will bring integrity and hard work to the role. I have a broad experience of life, but no experience of politics – and that might be a good thing.”
