Married to Christine with one son, John has lived in Writtle for over 40years. "I have been proud to serve as the County Member for the Broomfield & Writtle Division since 2005 to represent your interests, meeting with parish councils regularly to keep myself informed so that I can speak up for our communities on local issues. I have sought to ensure that the County Council has continued to deliver value for money, whilst maintaining the quality of all its essential services. And I have been privileged to see the delivery of these services throughout the County as the Council’s Chairman for the past year. It is crucial that Essex retains a strong Conservative Council to manage our finances prudently and to keep your Council Tax as low as possible.I should be very grateful for your continued support."
