I am proud of Newtown and take an active interest and pride in our local community – its a great place to live, work, learn and play.

I am delighted to be able to continue to serve you as a Town Councillor and will continue to support and assist local residents to ensure their needs are met.

I am keen to help people wherever possible and firmly believe that a Town Councillor has an important role to play in working for the benefit of the local community to make life better for our residents.

Attendance Record

Your Council’s decisions are made at meetings of the council or its committees.  Your Councillors have a duty to attend all meetings of the Council and meetings of the Committees of which they are members, unless an absence is approved by the meeting for a stated reason, for example a council duty elsewhere or ill-health.

Note that some councillors have been required to attend more meetings than others by reason, for example, of a shorter term of office or lesser number of committees to which elected, so the reader is advised to consider both the total number and the percentage when interpreting the attendance record.

There are no legal requirements for councillors to undertake training either before or after being elected.  However, this Council does require that all councillors undertake Code of Conduct training within six months of taking office and encourages all councillors to take advantage of training offered by organisations operating in the local council sector.
