Details taken from Blog Preston:

“…….presenting an event giving those with an opinion on the future of Preston Bus Station an opportunity to discuss/debate/tweet with a panel of key figures and commentators to share views, answer questions and to amplify the passionate voice of Preston. The Bus Station conversation is one that has been going on for sometime in digital forums and spaces –

John was elected as a councillor for Cadley Ward on September 16 2010 in a by-election and was re-elected in May 2012 with more votes and a greater share of the 44% turnout.
