Doug was a serving Essex Police Officer for many years and has lived with his family in Saffron Walden for over 30 years. On retirement from the Police Force, Doug was elected to Town and District Councils, becoming Town Mayor from 2009-2010, an honour he says he will never forget.
Doug has worked tirelessly to represent the interests of the people of Saffron Walden and Uttlesford residents. He has helped many overcome concerns and problems and is proud to have been part of a Conservative Administration at Uttlesford which has delivered on its manifesto commitments.
“I will continue to strive for the best interests of Audley Ward, the Town and the District. In these troubled times, it is essential to continue the policies of the Conservatives, which have brought Uttlesford District Council into a recovery that has restored stability to Uttlesford’s finances. Tough decisions were necessary and had to be implemented quickly. There is much hard work still to be done and Conservative Councillors will not shirk from that responsibility.
