Cllr Russell Holland
I am proud to be Swindon born and bred. I live in Stratton St Margaret with my wife Gaylene and have represented our area for the past 9 years as your local Borough Councillor. Working alongside my fellow ward Councillors John Haines & Colin Lovell, as well as our local MP Justin Tomlinson, I have worked hard to deliver for our community. My Council experience includes serving as the Cabinet Member for Finance, Sitting on the Police Authority, volunteering for local charities, campaigning against the wind turbines, and most recently, campaigning against the Bio-Mass plant. I host regular ward surgeries to continue engaging with local residents and I will continue to engage with fellow residents. My priorities include delivering fair and affordable Council tax, providing a strong voice on planning, ensuring access to key bus services, keeping our area tidy, tackling anti-social behaviour and supporting local charities, groups & clubs. It has been a privilege to represent fellow residents and I hope to be able to continue to serve our community.
