Statement to voters

Jonathan is married with two children who both attend Neville’s Cross Primary.

Full statement

He graduated from Aberystwyth University with a degree in Environmental Biology at 1991. Jonathan moved to Durham in 1997 and worked for Council’s across the County in countryside and environmental roles, then as Sustainable Development Manager with Durham City Council. More recently, he has established a social company called Democratise dedicated to increasing local participation in decision making, and also works as a freelance ecologist. If elected he will dedicate his time and experience towards achieving outcomes for Durham that create social, cultural, environmental and economic benefits.“I’ve lived in Durham City for the last 18 years where I met my wife Priscilla and we now have two children age 11 and 13 who attend Durham’s excellent schools. I love the City and have worked with Council’s for many years in roles connected with securing balance between economic development and the need to support the city’s community, rich history and environment that are so vital to our well being. Five years ago I left Durham County Council due to its abandonment of the idea that society, the economy and the environment should be considered as equal and interdependent. This is most blatantly evident in the Council’s emerging ‘County Durham Plan’. I am standing for election in order to draw attention to the impacts of Labour’s regressive plans for the City, and advocate an alternative and positive future”.

This statement was added by Jonathan Elmer, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
