Jonathan moved to Egham in 2005 to study History at Royal Holloway, University of London. He was first elected to Runnymede Borough Council in May 2008 and re-elected in May 2010.
He currently serves as Vice-Chairman of the Community Services Committee and also sits on the Planning Committee and Standards and Audit Committee.
In the past he has served upon numerous committees including Economic Development, Leisure and Environment and Housing and Community Services. He has also served as Chairman of a number of IT subcommittees.
Jonathan believes passionately that Runnymede should remain a sustainable community with first-class local amenities and services. Consequently he is against any over-development that damages the social or economic fabric of the Borough. He also believes that decisions affecting our community should be taken at a local level and not by central government.
In his spare time, Jonathan enjoys travelling, studying Russian history and culture, reading a diverse selection of books and journals and adding to his very eclectic music selection!
