Richard has lived in the county town all his life and has been an active member of the community since first standing for the Town Council back in 1993 and gaining the Dorchester North County seat (as it was) in 1997.
Married to Carolyn, who is also a town councillor, he works as a Programme Risk Manager for national Defence infrastructure contracts. On the County Council he sits on the Economic Growth Committee and is Vice Chair of the Corporate Parenting Board overseeing Dorset’s care of looked after children.
Richard was active in supporting the setting up of the charity that runs the new Dorchester Youth and Community Centre and sits as a trustee. He loves road cycling and walking in beautiful Dorset. Richard said, “Dorchester is a thriving community but it is not immune to government and DCC swinging cuts. Please lend me your support to continue the fight!”
