Anthony has represented Ashley Ward since 2006. He has also previously been a County Councillor, and is now standing again in St Albans East.

He is currently Chair of the Local Services Scrutiny Committee and Spokesperson for Sport, Culture and Heritage. Until May 2011, he was Portfolio Holder for Sport and Leisure and, along with colleagues, guided through the new Westminster Lodge project to the commencement of construction.

Over the years, he has worked closely with residents on a wide range of local issues:  highway safety; footway and  grass verges repairs; resolving parking problems; social housing provision; planning issues; improving  play facilities; improving our open spaces and enhancing other community facilities.

In July 2015 Anthony was appointed mental health champion for the City and District of St Albans. In that capacity he works with a wide variety of local organisations and individuals to raise awareness and understanding and improve mental health provision.

Anthony has two children, Sam and Alice. His late wife Harriet was a greatly respected and much loved teacher at Beaumont School until her retirement in 2013. The family have placed a bench in Harriet’s memory in Clarence Park.

He is often seen running around the ward checking on local issues. He has completed 12 London Marathons and 29 St Albans Half Marathons. He escapes from politics and work on Saturday afternoons in the sometimes hapless, sometimes joyful cause of supporting his beloved Burnley FC.
