Paul Taylor 2 ()

Paul Taylor candidate for the Burntwood South division in the May 2021 Staffordshire County Council Election and in Summerhill & All Saints ward in Lichfield district council by-election.

"My name is Paul Taylor known online and to my friends as theaardvark, and whilst I might look like a character from Game of Thrones, I am in fact your LibDem candidate for Burntwood South in the Staffordshire County Council May 2021 elections.

I am a local family man who has spent 95% of my life in Burntwood and raised my family here. As a former local business owner myself, I am passionate about championing and supporting other local businesses and groups in Burntwood and getting the best for its people.

I'm a former civil servant and a current enthusiastic attendee of all the public meetings held by the council. I have a clear idea about how the system works and how I can make a difference if I am elected.

As I am not standing for one of the controlling or opposition parties in the area, I can offer a fair, non-biased common-sense approach and will put Burntwood's needs at the heart of any decisions I am a part of.

I want the best for Burntwood, to ensure it gets its fair share of funding and support from the county, and will campaign for a new health centre as well as a fresh approach for the planning and infrastructure that is needed in the town centre.

My business knowledge is strong as I work in VAT and Customs Duty, which may sound dull but has given me great insight into regulations and finances. In stark contrast to my day job, at night I run a successful DJ business with my wife, and we have been going nearly 30 years. The huge range of both corporate and entertainment clients over the years means my communication skills are top notch and I am comfortable in any environment and have a diverse local network.

The recent pandemic has changed how a lot of us do work and business and how local government functions. Councils are now embracing technology for meetings and communications. I have been working with these technologies daily for the last 15 years+. And I know this knowledge will help me excel in my role as a councillor.

My life hasn't always been straight forward, I have previously been a carer and I am well aware of the strain this can put on a person and their family and I will always provide a voice for carers and help them get the support they need.

Overall, I believe government both central and local should put people first and should be supporting those in difficult or poor circumstances, and I will be fighting for fairness and equity throughout Burntwood and pledge to be a true voice for local people if you vote for me".
