John Aldridge

John Francis Aldridge (Broomfield and Writtle)

I have served as the County Member for the Broomfield & Writtle Division since 2005 seeking to stand up for the interests of all residents, meeting with parish councils regularly to represent local issues.  I have supported the County Council as it has delivered value for money whilst maintaining the quality of all its essential services. I therefore believe that Essex continues to need a strong Conservative Council to prudently manage its finances and keep Council Tax as low as possible. My priorities and personal aims are:

Howard Rolfe

Howard Rolfe (Ashdon)

I am delighted to have the opportunity of representing Ashdon, Sewards End, Hadstock and Little Walden if re-elected to Uttlesford District Council (UDC) on 7 May. They are four beautiful villages and like many in our District are quite rightly concerned to retain their rural charm and elegance. By way of background I have lived in this area most of my life and am married with three grown up children. Professionally I was with Marks & Spencer and from them was seconded to the Cabinet Office in Whitehall for two years.
