I was born in Kettering, the fifth generation of my family to do so. My home is in the Ward of 'All Saints' where I am a Ward Councillor, I am married to Lorraine and we have a Border Terrier called Razz.

This is my second term as a Borough Councillor and I have had the privilege of been a member of the Cabinet as the Portfolio holder for Housing.  Councillor James Burton

It is such an honour to be elected as Mayor for the year 2018 -2019 so I can serve the residents and promote the multicultural Borough of Kettering.

My charities for the coming year are The Dementia Garden at Kettering General Hospital and two clubs which help families with children on the Autistic scale, Ace (Autistic Children Embraced) and High Five, I decided I would like to keep the charities in the Borough.
