James has been a local councillor since his success in a Wellington Town Council by Election in 2009 and is presently a Town Councillor for Wellington East. In 2011 he became a Taunton Deane Borough Councillor, also for Wellington East, and held the Environmental and Climate Charge Portfolio up until the last election.
In 2013 James was also successful in becoming a Somerset County Councillor in the Upper Tone Division and retained his seat in 2017 when the electorate showed increased confidence in their councillor. James believes that it is import to be involved in the community and in the running of the council as both go hand in hand and so attends many parish council meeting and local events and is sure to attend all of his council duties.
James works for the NHS at Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton when he is not involved in his council duties but has previously worked in other NHS bodies in South Wales and in Exeter.
For recreation James enjoys visiting new places in the UK and abroad and has been an active member in the local music scene for over twenty five years and continues to play in a local band.
