Paul Zukowskyj

County Councillor for Hatfield South

Borough Councillor for Welham Green and Hatfield South

Paul came to be known for the sterling work he did campaigning against the incinerator planned for Hatfield. He was a key figure in the fight against the Conservative-led County Council's plan to burn all the county's rubbish at New Barnfield from the moment the plan was announced in November 2007 right up to the point where the Government threw out the plan in 2015.

He is a family man, living in Hatfield with his wife and children. His children go to school in Welwyn Hatfield, and he works in Hatfield too. He cares deeply about the local area and will work hard to make Welwyn Hatfield a better place to live, work and play.

On the County Council, Paul is the Shadow Cabinet member for Resources. The Liberal Democrats are the official opposition on the County Council.

Paul has worked hard to improve the state of our roads and pavements, addressing the appalling neglect that Herts County Council has shown, although this is a massive uphill struggle since the Conservatives at County Hall are still holding the purse-strings. Things need to change and Paul believes he has helped start to make that happen, pressing the Conservatives to provide the services and support the people of Hertfordshire pay for and deserve.

In 2016 Paul was also elected to represent the people of Welham Green and Hatfield South on Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council.

On his election, Paul said "I would like to thank each and every person who voted for me in May 2016. It was fantastic to know that people in Welham Green considered my track record and decided I was the best person to represent them. I'll do all I can to ensure I repay their faith and I'll continue to fight to get the best possible deal for the friends and neighbours who live in my constituencies."
