It is an honour to be the Chairman of the Tonbridge, Edenbridge & Malling Conservative Association and to represent the members of the Association and the fantastic areas in which we live. I have been a Borough Councillor for the Higham Ward in North Tonbridge since 2019 and I am currently the Chairman of the Tonbridge Area Planning Committee. I also serve on the Planning & Transportation Advisory Board and a number of other committees. I have lived in Tonbridge since 2013, but have a long association with the area from my professional and personal life. My professional background was in telecommunication, business management and project delivery. I am very happy to be able to support our MP Tom Tugendhat in all the good works he is doing and to support our current Conservative councillors as well as all the new talent that is coming through.
