David Barrie

Councillor for Sutton New Hall WardI've lived in New Hall for most of my life. I always wanted to be a councillor for my area - being involved in politics since 1974 - and am proud to have achieved this ambition.Away from the council I run a small service company providing consultancy services for insurance companies - and have done now for over a decade. Dealing with insurance documents and jargon has been a good preparation for the council too.
