Howard Ryles (Takeley)

I am honoured to have been selected as one of your three Conservative candidates in the Uttlesford elections.

By way of background I have spent most of my life in Essex and am married with two teenage children, living in Uttlesford for over 10 years. I have previous local Government experience serving as a Parish Councillor for several years in nearby Great Waltham.

My career has been in the London insurance market and I am now running my own insurance consultancy business. In a different field I have experience of handling care for the elderly and adolescent mental health issues and the resulting challenges these create for families.

In representing Takeley I would draw upon my life and business experiences and use these to advance the best interests of our area. I would push for infrastructure expenditure when appropriate and aim to ensure overall planning decisions enhance our attractions and amenities.
