Eddie was elected to represent the Calthorpe Division in May 2017. He considers it a huge honour to represent the area where he too lives and works. Like most hard-working people, he believes that politics is about finding solutions to problems, not problems to politicise. Having worked in Local Government, he recognises the challenges public services face.
Since his election, Eddie has successfully pushed for local road improvements, including an extensive resurfacing of the Bloxham Road junction and the Oxford Road and the installation of double yellow line enforcement to ameliorate localised parking problems, renewed calls for a new motorway junction on the M40 to serve south Banbury and campaigned against the centralisation of acute service provision at the Horton General Hospital, addressing the HOSC health scrutiny committee on several occasions. As a small business owner in Banbury town centre, he is invested in supporting improvements to our High Street and attracting other new businesses to set up shop, helping the town centre continue to thrive.
