District Councillor for Kimpton & County Candidate for Hitchin North
John Bishop has lived in the village of Whitwell for 35 years. On leaving University, John joined a shipping company and has spent his whole career in domestic and international logistics, including 19 years running his own business.
John has been known to assist the greenkeeper at Mid Herts to aerate the fairways with a lousy golf swing. He plays squash and tennis regularly and also “treads the boards” in amateur dramatics.
It is often not easy for electors to understand the different responsibilities of the District Council and the County Council which leads to frustration for both councillors and the public. John supports the idea that there should be one point of contact.
John is a North Hertfordshire District Councillor, representing Kimpton, and is now seeking your support to be elected County Councillor for Hitchin North. If elected John’s priorities would be as follows:
- Social care
- Education for children with special educational needs
- Making it easier for people to cycle, walk and use public transport
- Cutting our carbon footprint
