Born and bred in Banbury, Tony is driven by a passion to see the town thrive. He believes in providing value for money services that work for the benefit of local communities. In his view, Council Budgets must be controlled and not allowed to spiral remembering that every penny the Council spends is raised by hardworking residents. Serving as Town Mayor on two occasions has given Tony an insight into the needs and hopes of the people of our town. He was first elected to Cherwell District Council in May 2018.
