Working hard for Maidstone and The Weald

James has lived and worked in Kent for most of his life. He cares about people and relates quickly and effortlessly to everyone he meets.  He was elected to Maidstone Borough Council in 2014 and rapidly established a reputation as a fearless and effective representative.  He has become an energetic campaigner, particularly on environmental and transport issues, and he believes in working with community groups to get results.  James has led several campaigns to support local public services and to protect green spaces and has helped many local residents with individual issues and concerns. 

As a family man, he is well aware of the problems facing both young families and the wider community.  He would be a truly local champion for everyone, young and old and would devote himself tirelessly to serving the area he loves.



We are very fortunate to call The Garden of England our home but there are problems in Maidstone and The Weald,  of these traffic congestion and the resulting air pollution, are probably the most pressing.

The Conservative Government and their chaotic mishandling of Brexit have cost taxpayers here in Maidstone and The Weald millions of pounds.  It has also brought chaos to our roads. Remember Operation Stack? The Tory Brexit ‘solution’ Operation Brock, proved to be even more shambolic for the few days it was in operation! Imagine what it will be like if Brexit goes ahead.

It is time to repair the damage caused by years of Tory austerity by major increases in funding for our children’s education, our health services, and the police, and to take the action needed to deal with the threat posed by climate change. 

I promise to work tirelessly for the residents of Maidstone and The Weald.
