Councillor James Smith

“My name is James Smith, and I’m the Councillor for  Baddeley, Milton and Norton ward, with Cllr Dave Evans and Cllr Carl Edwards.

“I’m born and bred in Stoke-on-Trent, went to university locally and now live with my fiancée and beautiful son in the city. I’m proud to come from our area, and want my son to grow up with the same pride in where he comes from.

“I used to vote Labour, but became disillusioned by old style politics – I decided to get involved when local policies started to affect where I work.

“Many residents will know me from being the former manager of a local charity shop in Tunstall, and I have a strong background in the voluntary sector.

“People said councillors wouldn’t be interested in what I had to say, but not only did they listen, they acted too! Making sure the council responds to what residents want is so important to me.”
