John Baker – a long term Colchester resident and former Head Teacher who is county councillor for Parsons Heath and East Gates
John Baker has lived in our part of Colchester with his wife and family for most of his adult life. Their three sons attended local schools when they were growing up. Currently two of their grandchildren attend a local primary school. John is a former Essex Head Teacher and very active as a school governor. He is a founder member of the Liberal Democrats and was a Colchester Borough Councillor for nine years, representing the then ward of St. John’s.
As your County Councillor John will:
- Fight to keep the Turner Road Walk in Centre open.
- Ensure your concerns are heard at County Hall.
- Protect the special character of Parson’s Heath and East Gate from over-development.
John will bring his long experience of running a school and being a Borough Councillor to County Hall. As someone who is rooted in the local community he will be a wise and powerful voice for Parsons Heath and East Gate.
