Jonathan Owen

East Wolds and Coastal

I have been privileged to represent residents on East Riding of Yorkshire council as a Councillor since first being elected in 1999 and first and foremost recognise my responsibility to all the residents of the Ward I represent.

I am putting myself forward again for election and hope to continue the work with colleagues Jane Evison and Paul Lisseter. We work closely together on a range of issues brought to us by residents and by working closely with the 21 Parish Councils in the ward.

As Deputy Leader of the Council for the past 18 years I have gained a detailed understanding of how the council and its over 600 services operate and above all what is important to our residents.

I have used my time to build local, regional and national connections through involvement with the Local Government Association nationally, which has involved me with work in dozens of other local authorities advising and learning from their problems as well as sharing best practice.

I am passionate about the role of local government in looking after its residents, listening to their needs and giving high quality, cost effective services based on their priorities.

I am proud of the Council’s record in prudent financial management, whilst continuing to deliver high quality, valued services in exceedingly difficult times.

I would relish the opportunity to continue to represent the residents of East Wolds and Coastal Ward and continue to work locally, regionally and nationally to fight for the best deal for the East Riding.

I have a particular passion for improving Health and Wellbeing and reducing social Inequalities which I have been able to fulfil through chairing the East Riding Health and Wellbeing Board. I am acutely aware of the pressures and issues with a growing elderly population and the need for high quality social care and will continue to make it a priority, whilst not forgetting the needs of our younger population from birth to adulthood.

The East Riding is a fantastic place to live with a tremendous future and, after a career in the private sector, having run a business here with my wife and brought up my children we are now enjoying visits by our young grandchildren and want to keep it a place they will always relish visiting.

I hope you will allow me to continue to represent you and be part of keeping the East Riding and particularly East Wolds and Coastal Ward a very special place in which to live, grow, work, age and enjoy.
