Ron is a qualified chartered accountant and father of two sons. He has spent lockdown supporting family members who'd been seriously ill with Covid, and taking care of his children while his wife works for the NHS vaccination programme.

Having previously also taken a year off in his career to care for his father, who suffers from dementia, Ron has been striving to support his neighbours, fellow residents, and the local community.

As the son of parents who, as doctors, specialised in mental health, he's determined to improve mental health provision for Potters Bar and Shenley - and make community wellbeing a priority as we emerge from Covid and renew our local neighbourhoods.
