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.


  • Brexit demonstration in London
    Article: Nov 8, 2018
    By Cllr Paul Ray

    Brexit continues to threaten us with national catastrophe. The Prime Minister's Chequers plan (which must now be dead in the water) would leave us complying with EU rules, but without our current ability to influence them. Extremism within her own party is a growing problem; polls show that a majority of pro-Brexit Tory voters in England would prefer to break-up the UK and jeopardise peace in Northern Ireland than stay in the EU.

    Article: Nov 6, 2018

    As a local party we are strong supporters of new housing and especially affordable housing in Lichfield district. On this subject Lichfield Tories have failed to deliver. The Conservative led Council's target for 2017/18 was planning permission for 1300 homes. In fact, permission was granted for only 416 homes, and only 120 affordable homes were built. We simply must do better.
