Nigel Quinton
Handside & Peartree Candidate 2017

Nigel QuintonFollowing a successful career in the energy industry as an exploration geologist with BP and a then with a number of small start-up companies, I got involved in local politics in 2005. I was a councillor for Handside Ward from 2006 to 2008, and have helped the Handside and Peartree teams ever since, getting involved in many campaigns locally.

I helped lead the cross party Hospital SOS campaign in 2006-7, and was involved in the successful campaigns to stop the Hatfield Incinerator, reopen Marsden Road Post Office, make WGC a Fairtrade Town, and introduce plastic recycling. Whilst a councillor I helped to secure cross party support for a local Climate Change strategy and worked to raise awareness of green issues generally. I was also responsible for setting up the council's Health Working Group to maintain local Council involvement in the local NHS after this function was transferred to the County Council.

I continue to work as a consultant in the energy sector, but am now looking for roles in renewable energy as that is the future. Meanwhile I am campaigning to fight the disastrous local plan that the Council is putting forward. As your County Councillor I will argue passionately for better integration of health and social care, more money for our schools, and for massive improvements in public transport, cycleways and footways, to give people a real alternative to driving.

And I will carry on Malcolm Cowan's hard work to get highways contractor Ringway to do the job they are paid so handsomely to do!

If you have any questions, or any local issues you would like to see addressed , please get in touch with me, and I will do my best to help you.
