Paul has lived in Medway all his life; born at Canada House in Gillingham and living in Gillingham for his early years and then for the most part in Rainham. He started work at Chatham Naval Base as a Stores Officer Trainee when he left school at 16.

Paul has a keen interest in Health and Education matters.


Paul first became involved in the Lib Dems following the 2010 coalition as he saw this as a wonderful opportunity for lib dems not only to be part of government, but also welcomed the opportunity that two parties could work together for the greater good of the people and therefore represent a wider percentage of the electorate. Paul is immensely proud of what the Liberal Democrats managed to achieve in government; from less than a 25% share of the overall vote, we managed to deliver 75% of OUR manifesto ! That is some achievement.


Paul has been an active, regular campaigner for the Lib Dems and was proud to be selected as Parliamentary Candidate for Gillingham and Rainham in the 2015 election. He also stood as a local council candidate for Watling Ward in Gillingham.

He also campaigned and leafleted other wards, including Rainham North and Gillingham South.

Paul has been Treasurer of the local party since he joined in 2011 and is currently the Parliamentary Spokesperson and was delighted to be asked to be the Medway Spokesperson for the EU YES campaign and firmly believes we should remain as part of the EU.
