Statement to voters
A member of the Liberal Democrats since 2001, Tom joined the party to campaign for Paul Holmes to be elected as MP for Chesterfield. For Tom the main issues in this General Election are increasing NHS funding, ensuring that pensions are protected, and making sure the UK gets the best possible deal when leaving the EU so that we don't damage the economy resulting in a major loss of jobs.
Married with three grown up children, Tom and his family have lived in the Chesterfield area for over twenty years. His children all went to school in Chesterfield. He was born and grew up in Hartlepool in the North East. Leaving school at 16 he served an apprenticeship as a welder, before returning to education and studying for a degree in Applied Sciences in Wolverhampton. His B.Sc. degree was followed by an MBA from Leicester University.
Tom has spent over 30 years working in industry in a variety of technical and commercial roles. He is a Chartered Engineer, spent many years working in the car industry, and now works as a Strategic Procurement Manager in the renewable energy sector providing the clean green electricity generation that we need for the future. In his working life Tom has been responsible for managing major commercial contracts worth millions of pounds. Getting value for money in public spending, combating government waste, and promoting affordable homes are all central issues for him.
