James was elected to the role of Vice President of the Association at the September 2020 AGM, and re-elected to that role at the March 2021 AGM.
He was elected to East Suffolk Council, as member for the Deben ward, in the May 2019 ESC election. He is currently the Cabinet Member for the Environment at East Suffolk Council.
After relocating from London a number of years ago, a change in lifestyle included a greater commitment to volunteering in the local community. He's an active Parish Councillor in Hollesley, James volunteers for Meet up Mondays and is treasurer of a local Good Neighbour Scheme. He knows first hand the importance of volunteering and community improvement. Relaxation involves running and bell ringing at the local church.
James has been appointed to run the Association's branch of the Conservative Policy Forum, CPF.
We look forward to being able to hold more face-to-face meetings of the CPF, including its popular annual gathering, when the pandemic has passed.
