Arash was re-elected County Councillor for the Deddington division in May 2017 having represented the area since 2013. In that time Arash has fought passionately to represent the concerns of residents across the division's 13 parishes on a wide variety of local issues, from potholes to fighting against excessive development, concerns about rural policing and infrastructure, and campaigning to protect vital local services such as bus routes and fighting for the Horton Hospital. He was instrumental in getting Oxford University NHS Foundation Trust’s (OUHFT) decision to suspend obstetric services at the Horton General Hospital referred to the Secretary of State for Health. He continues to be committed to the Horton cause as the Chairman of Oxfordshire's Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee (HOSC) who play an important role in holding the Trust and the Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to account.
Between 2013 and 2017, Arash has used his Councillors community budget to help deliver several local initiatives including; investment in adult gym equipment for Bodicote park, £3000 donated towards the redevelopment of Deddington green, the installation of a temporary wall around Fritwell pond and money to support Steeple Aston's valentine club which connects older people from nearby villages. He lives in the Division with his wife and young son.
