Darren is an Armed Forces Veteran who grew up in New Brighton and returned to settle here after his service with the RAF. As well as tours of Afghanistan and Iraq, Darren also served as a Community RAF Police Officer for several RAF bases and their local communities. Darren wants to use this experience serving New Brighton as your local Councillor.
Darren has already successfully defended New Brighton from the damaging Labour Group proposal of parking charges along New Brighton's historic seafront 2 years in succession with his petitions and local news coverage forcing Labour to back down. He continues to support local residents and businesses, and welcomes any requests for assistance.
Following the resignation of Labour Councillor Pat Hackett, many people have said they want their next councillors to have a track record of getting things done for New Brighton. People in New Brighton will be electing two councillors next and Darren is working with Tony Pritchard to give people a local voice in the Town Hall.
