Your Candidate for Norton
John grew up near Scarborough and moved back to North Yorkshire two years ago with his wife. He cares deeply about this beautiful part of the world, its people and its environment.
John said “I joined the Labour Party because I believe we can build a better North Yorkshire, free from insecurity and social injustice. For all the area’s potential, opportunity is still far too unequal. Norton voters deserve the chance to vote for change.”
He is a civil engineer, specialising in railway design. He also serves on Sherburn Parish Council where he recently led a project to install cycle parking for the village amenities.
Before returning to North Yorkshire John was chair of Warrington Civic Society for three years leading campaigns to preserve the town’s heritage and for high quality new development.
In his free time he enjoys walking with the family dog in the Wolds and Moors, baking and playing cricket.
