“North Dorset needs someone with strong roots in our community and a stake in our future to be a local voice for us in Parliament. Otherwise we'll continue to be left behind. I've lived in North Dorset all my life, so that's what I offer. A local voice for North Dorset.”
Pat was born and bred in North Dorset and has lived here pretty much all his life. He grew up and went to school in Gillingham and now lives down the road in Blandford with his wife Jodie and their two young children. Pat works as a Transformation Manager for a Dorset based insurance company. He has served his community as a Town Councillor for the past few years and believes that local people should be arbiters of their own destiny.
He’s Chair of the Blandford Forum Town Council’s Climate Change Working Group and is a founding member of ‘Blandford War on Waste’.
Pat is also the Labour Party’s candidate for the next general election. Pat was Labour’s candidate in the 2017 General Election, where Labour came second in North Dorset for the first time in their history.
