Statement to voters

David was born and raised in the West Riding of Yorkshire, studied Civil Engineering at London University, has lived in the Wrenthorpe and Outwood West ward of Wakefield since 1986, and is married with grown-up children.

Full statement



As a Chartered Civil Engineer, designing roads, bridges, drainage and flood defences, he has worked locally in Yorkshire and overseas in Africa and the Middle East where he ran the office of a UK company with a multinational staff of around 80.

He is a member of the local community association and environmental group, and a churchwarden.

He became involved with politics in 2010, joining UKIP and after Brexit moved to Reform UK. He has stood as a candidate in Euro, Westminster, and local elections, and for 4 years he served his ward as a UKIP councillor on Wakefield MDC, repeatedly challenging the Labour Council leadership on planning issues, the use of Council funds, and was the only councillor to oppose the privatisation of Council services and support union members against the move.

At a national level the Conservatives have let us down, but Labour do not seem any better, which is affecting us all locally. The dramatic population increase without corresponding increases in housing and infrastructure is causing hardship and frustration through high housing costs and long waits for services. David has seen how other countries deal with control of those needed to work in their economies – it can be done. Meanwhile the obsessive drive for “Net Zero” puts our prosperity in jeopardy.

David is standing for Reform UK because he has had enough of the mediocre representation over the last few decades that has led us to where we are today.

If you are fed up too, get involved, join us, volunteer and help us campaign.
