Bert Bruins - Diversity Officer
Bert has lived in Torridge for 15 years. He has run green businesses and currently works in home care.
If elected as a county councillor for Bideford West and Hartland, Bert will campaign for restoring the central government grant back to pre-2010 levels (we have lost so much funding: terrible roads and increasing Council Tax bills are some of the results).
Bert will also highlight the problem of finding carers when you live in a rural area and are in need of home care. He will push to stop the practice by some of "flipping" second homes into businesses, which then leads to no Council Tax being paid on those properties (the rest of us ending up paying more).
Stephen is an accountant who has worked in Financial Services for the last 25 years and is currently working locally.
He is passionate about balancing protection of the environment with the need to create genuine well-paid jobs in North Devon especially in the aftermath of Covid and Brexit. It is an area which has for too long been ignored and unsupported by both county and national administrations.
He is married with 3 children all of whom have been educated in local Devon schools. He moved to North Devon 10 years ago and has never looked back, enjoying the local countryside and community spirit. Hobbies include long coastal walks with the family's springer spaniels, appearing in the local Panto and gardening.
Pete has been a Tavistock town councillor for 4 years and a recycling champion with the Borough Council. Born into a local farming family, Peter attended Tavistock College, where his children also went to school, and was chair of Tavistock College Governors in the early 2000s. Pete has spent over 30 years working in health and social care for Devon County Council and the NHS. He knows the importance of sound investment and management of social care. He wants to see county council services maximised to their full potential, and to build relationships across the community to support recovery from the pandemic.
