David is an active co-operator, a Christian and involved with many voluntary and environmental organisations in the area.

He has been a Labour Party member since 1969 and is an active Trade Unionist being a member of Unison and UCU. David prides himself on his local campaigning. He is a socialist and fights for fairness and justice working for a better society from the bottom up.

The Stroud constituency is one of the most marginal in the south-west, and David will be working hard to retake it for the Labour Party.
