Paul Ray - 2015 Election

Paul Ray, Councillor for Chadsmead Ward

Paul has spent all his adult life in the Midlands following graduation in 1986 from Aston University, and has worked as a solicitor since 1997 and has been a partner since 2005. He specialises in banking and finance law advising in the private and public sectors and as finance is key to any business or organisation, Paul's work gives him very relevant experience of the pressures affecting business and the public sector.

A councillor on Lichfield City and District Councils for Chadsmead ward, he was elected with 44.7% and 40% of the vote respectively in February 2016.

As a very active and committed councillor Paul has a proven track record for taking time to deal with local residents' issues relating to planning, housing, public nuisance, traffic, road safety to name a few.

    Lib Dem Councillor Paul Ray has responded to the announcement that Staffs Police are to further reduce the police service in the city by closing the desk in the Lichfield District Council offices.

    Paul Ray said,"We can be thankful that knife crime is not a major problem in the Lichfield area and that we are spared many of the horrors that seem to afflict our larger cities. Even so, a police presence is a necessity in our community, but it seems that the Conservative government's cuts in policing will deprive Lichfield residents of a vital service.

    Where should the Friarsgate project go next? The Lib Dem vision

    The Friarsgate saga continues - and will continue, as long as the gaping empty space where the car dealership used to stand, and the empty former police station building, not to mention the not-so-gracefully ageing bus station, continue to greet visitors to Lichfield.
