Nick Ansell is one of two new Conservatives joining the Ratton Ward team on the ballot paper for important Borough elections next May.
Nick Ansell and David Small will stand alongside well-known local councillor Colin Belsey, who has been a mainstay for the ward on both the Borough and East Sussex County councils.
Colin Belsey said: “I thank my current colleagues for the work they have put in over the years on behalf of local residents. I am sure that Nick and David will prove to be excellent councillors for Ratton and are already championing local issues.
“Along with our MP, Caroline Ansell, we make a formidable team for all the residents of Ratton who need our help.”
Nick Ansell runs a tour and private-hire business, having taught PE for 30 years and played cricket for Eastbourne. He said, “The town’s sport and leisure facilities are important and, as a family man, I am keen to develop more youth opportunities as well.”
Your Conservative team in Ratton: Nick Ansell, Cllr Colin Belsey, David Small and our MP, Caroline Ansell.
