Alan was first elected to Medway Council in 1997 to represent North Dane Ward, and was returned for that Ward again in 2000. Following boundary changes in Medway he was elected to represent Lordswood & Capstone in 2003.
Alan is currently Deputy Leader of Medway Council, and also responsible for the Finance Portfolio on Medway’s Cabinet. He is proud to be overseeing the finances in Medway, which gives Medway the lowest council tax in Kent.
Locally he works on behalf of residents in solving local problems, and is able to promote Lordswood & Capstone via his work on Medway’s Cabinet. Many small schemes have been successfully delivered in Lordswood & Capstone over the last few years, with the most recent high profile example being the £185,000 youth project to build a ball court and renovate Lordswood library.
Currently work is being undertaken in partnership with the police to tackle some of the youth related issues that affect the Ward.
Alan and his Ward colleague David Wildey hold regular surgeries for residents at Lordswood Library on the first Saturday of every month.
