It is a great honour to have been elected in May 2017 as the Welsh Conservative Party representative in Usk for the Monmouthshire County Council.

Born and brought up in Caerleon, educated there and then Monmouth, my association with Usk goes back to 1962 when playing cricket for Usk CC. I married my wife Mary in 1968 and we moved to Priory Gardens that year. We have a son Tim who lives in Usk with his wife Claire and our two grandsons; also a daughter Sally living in Newport. I worked for Cashmores in engineering until 1983, when redundancy motivated me to start my own business which I ran until 1999. I became a member of Usk Baptist Chapel in 1979, and served as a Deacon for some years, only giving up when business matters became pressing. I remain a committed member of that Church.

I have always been a keen sportsman. In addition to playing and captaining Usk at cricket, I also played football for the Town, and badminton until a few years ago. I continue to take a keen interest in the sporting activities of the Town, especially as my grandsons now belong to some of the junior clubs in Usk.

I have been Chairman of the Usk Conservative Club since 1999 and also the Conservative Branch for many years. I am extremely honoured to have been a member of Usk Town Council, and having served as Mayor in 2002-3. I was re-elected in 2004 and 2008.

Having lived in Usk for 40 years, I love this Town and have its well-being at heart. I have seen quite a few changes, but essentially Usk has remained a delightful, closely knit community with a wonderful spirit of comradeship. I want to see Usk continue as such, and ensure that any changes that may come in the future to complement the Town, which should enable it to retain its individuality.

I pledge that your welfare and well-being as residents will always have my full and enthusiastic attention. I promise that I will give to the role the dedication that you as residents of Usk deserve.

David was born in 1970 and educated at Bassaleg Comprehensive School in Newport, South Wales. After leaving he spent several years abroad, mainly in Australia where he had various jobs, including as a nightclub promoter, tobacco picker and ‘rickshaw driver’.

Returning to the UK, he gained an HGV licence and spent several years as a continental lorry driver before stepping in to manage the family haulage business.

In 1999 he helped to set up and run the anti-Welsh Assembly campaign. When the Assembly was established he stood for Monmouthshire on a platform of being against the whole principle of devolution and promising to oppose further powers and stand for the Union. He was the only Conservative elected to any constituency and in the 2001 election he gained the biggest majority of any Assembly Member from any party. In 2005 he was first elected as the Member of Parliament for Monmouth and was re-elected in 2010 with an increased majority of 10,425 from 4,527.

David is a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee and also serves as a Special Constable with the British Transport Police. He is an advocate of tough measures to deal with criminality. A keen sportsman, he recently defeated Britain’s only openly gay boxer at a match in London where he fought as ‘The Tory Tornado’. A one time fanatical surfer, he can still be found at Rest Bay in Porthcawl or Llantwit Major although he admits that family commitments have restricted the opportunities to get into the water!

David married his long term Hungarian girlfriend Aliz in October 2003. They live in Monmouth with their three children.
