What you need to know about Ian:


Ian is a member of UKIP Stretford & Urmston with his wife Pauline, who is the branch treasurer.  Ian is proud to stand in a ward that has twice voted for UKIP, attaining 11.1% (2015) and 17.1% (2014).  Ian hopes to continue the cause in Daveyhulme East.


Ian thinks that the Council has long since been a political football of personal and political interests on the council.  Ian thinks it is time that a fresh and refreshing point of view is voted on to the council in order to help lead the council forward in one of the most interesting times, which is the creation of the Greater Manchester Mayor and the potential damage this will do to Trafford.


As a professional musician and instrumental teacher for Cheshire Education Authority, Ian has viewed with dismay the semi-destruction of music tuition in schools. Music in our schools contributes far more to the National and Local Exchequer than Public Relations students who graduate to Lib/Lab/Con. Ian also writes a monthly column in a local free magazine.


When Ian retired from teaching and full time professional music, he took a part time job driving a community transport vehicle for Trafford Council and ferried many elderly people living in Davyhulme East and various other parts of the Borough to and from their homes to Care Centres. Sadly, the Council sold off transport provision to private enterprise.
