David and his wife have lived in Malvern for 23 years. He is an engineer by profession, but having spent his working life in manufacturing, his focus now is on transport, especially trains and the importance of a rapid move to low carbon energy production.
He sees climate change is the great challenge of our times and we must rapidly de-carbonise many aspects of our lives. There is much more the County council should be doing in this area and David wants to be able to push it to move much faster.
Richard has lived on Malvern for 12 years, raised his family here and taught at a local school for some years. He is a specialist in dyslexia, ADHD and autism; alongside his own specialist practice he runs a small company, operating across the UK, Europe, the Middle East and India, that trains
individuals to provide effective interventions based on respect for the creative talents that accompany these learning difficulties. He is also Trustee of a small charity that raises funds for people on low incomes who need this kind of help. Based on his wide experience in education, he wants to see a greater emphasis on creativity in all our schools.
Jed has lived in Sinton Green, Shoulton and Hallow for nearly 40 years, the only candidate to live in Hallow County Division! He and his wife brought 3 daughters through primary at Grimley, then Chantry. He and his eldest daughter still care for her now elderly ponies.
Accountancy led to IT. He ran his own businesses bringing emerging technologies to market in IT, telecoms, then home-working, influencing fast broadband across Worcestershire. Passionately committed to transitioning the economy to sustainability for his children and future generations, Jed identifies emerging technologies to transition to zero carbon realistically. He works actively locally as an approved Green LibDem candidate and nationally as a member of the Green LibDem Executive (www.GreenLibDems.org.uk.)
Clifford was brought up in Upton where his wider family remain. After training as an engineer in Malvern he worked around the country and overseas for many years before returning home to Worcestershire over 20 years ago where he now works as a part time consultant.
Given his professional background, he is particularly interested in good quality and cost effective public services. He wants more open discussion about the right balance between the types and number of homes needed locally and maintaining a healthy and biodiverse environment . Poor planning has led to too many homes on flood plains and new homes are still being built to inadequate insulation standards and with no electric car chargers, both of which will hinder vital progress towards carbon neutrality over the next few decades. Clifford believes that for too long the complacent Conservative County Council has had no effective opposition which has led to appalling standards in Adult Social Care and a lack of any clear strategy to support the fight against climate change.
