Your Clarence candidates for the May 2022 district council elections are Chris White, Josie Madoc and Mark Pedroz.
Chris White has served as the district councillor for Clarence Ward since 2008 and is now leader of the district council. His vision for St Albans includes a new local plan– one which puts the climate emergency at its heart, and making the centre more of a ‘café society’, with less traffic in the city centre and sensible pedestrianisation. Chris aims to make it easier and safer for people in St Albans to walk and cycle. Chris has also been the Herts county councillor for St Albans Central division since 1993.
District councillor Josie Madoc lives in St Albans with her husband and two secondary school-aged children. She has been working on projects such as regeneration of the Fleetville Community Centre where she is a trustee, the possibility of a skate park in the centre of St Albans, and preserving the important amenity of Clarence Park. She is also proud to be a St Albans Mental Health Champion focusing on young people and workplaces.
District councillor Mark Pedroz is a local teacher, writer and educational consultant. He has lived in St Albans since 1998, and lives with his family off the Hatfield Road. Mark wants to see better facilities for young people, a lively city centre and more control of road traffic. Since becoming a councillor in 2021, he has sat on Planning Control, Public Realm and Local Plan committees. High-quality housing, sustainable transport and green spaces are his priorities.
