Jack's story

jack-speaking-web.jpegGraduating from the University of Warwick with a master’s degree in Mathematics and Physics in 2014, I joined Centrica on the Maidenhead Road where I started my career in commodity trading and investment decision-making in the energy industry. I was honoured to be elected to represent central Windsor on the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, where I also served as the youngest-ever Cabinet Member. At this time, amongst other community roles, I chaired the Windsor Town Forum and served as a board member of the Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

I am now once again asking Windsor for its support, this time to serve as its next Member of Parliament. My motivation comes from values instilled into me by my parents all the way back in my days growing up in Ashton-under-Lyne outside of Manchester - I come from an aspirational, working-class background, with self-made small businesspeople parents. They weren’t political, but worked night and day to secure the qualifications they needed and grow their business to ensure both I and my brother Gus could have the opportunities they hadn’t enjoyed. From an early age I associated our family’s values of aspiration and quiet patriotism with the Conservative and Unionist Party.

I will be a fully active, involved and local Member of Parliament, visible and available right across the various towns and villages of this constituency. We must continue Adam’s campaigns on flooding and Heathrow, and I would vote similarly to Adam against any backsliding towards the European Union. But we must also ensure that all our towns and villages have access to their Member of Parliament, who will fight day and night for their priorities. With your support, that is the kind of MP I hope to be.

My Promises to You

Windsor, Clewer and Dedworth, Datchet, Eton and Eton Wick, Horton, Wraysbury, Old Windsor, Ascot, Sunningdale, Sunninghill, Cheapside, Englefield Green, Virginia Water, Colnbrook, Foxborough and Langley – these will never just be a list of places - they will remain my first priority every day I am fortunate enough to serve you.

I will run a full-time, fully-staffed constituency office in Central Windsor, holding regular street and drop-in surgeries in every town, village and parish in the constituency so that everyone has access to their local MP.

I will live in the heart of the constituency, commuting to Parliament on a daily basis as so many residents do every day. I know how important it is for our MP to live in and understand the needs of our historic towns and villages.

I will report back on my work in Parliament at every constituency meeting and provide regular campaign updates as your candidate.
