Harrow Weald Lib Dems – The Bios

2014_ross_barlowRoss Barlow

Ross moved to Harrow Weald in 2011 after studying for a Masters in Critical Global Politics at Exeter University. He got involved in local politics almost immediately and joined the Harrow Weald Lib Dems after he was impressed with their local reputation for working hard. In 2013 alone he and the team presented 15 petitions to the Council to fix local problems. During the day he works as an office assistant in a local Harrow business. He says: “Since Joining the Harrow Weald Lib Dems I have learned so much about real local politics, fighting every day to fix the problems on people’s doorsteps. This is a lesson the absent Tory Councillors never seem to have learned”

Darren has lived in Harrow for 30 years and in Harrow Weald for the last 7. He runs a local accountancy firm and has been a Beaver and Cub Scout leader with the 5th Stanmore for the last 15 years. He has recently become a father. Previously Darren was a governor at Stanburn First School for 12 years. Previous to being involved in the Lib Dems he was elected 4 times to attend NUS conference and was also the treasurer for London Region Union of Jewish Students. He says: “I first got involved with the Harrow Weald Lib Dems because Paul Scott was the only Councillor working hard all year round. Working hard for Harrow Weald is at the heart of the local Liberal Democrats and I wanted to be a part of that.”

Paul Scott has lived in Harrow all his life and served as a councillor in Harrow Weald from 2006 to 2010. During that time, he sat on the chief officer employment panel, helping to appoint the Council’s senior managers and on the overview and scrutiny committee, taking part in major studies such as the cultural services review.  He frequently attended the planning and transport committees to speak on behalf of local residents. He supported major projects like the redevelopment of Cedars Hall and opposed cuts to service provision in Harrow Weald. Paul sat on the Harrow Refugees and Minorities Forum and Harrow Weald Common Conservators and continues to serve as a governor at a local high school. He says: “Since 2010 we have seen what happens to our area when 3 Tories would rather be playing party politics at the Civic Centre than looking out for Harrow Weald. We want Harrow Weald to once again have councillors who care about fly tipping, pot holes, graffiti, lighting and other local problems.”
