Originally from the North East, Dominic studied law at the University of Central Lancashire. After qualifying as a solicitor he worked in London before moving to Essex. Dominic currently works for a law firm based in North Essex, specialising in medical negligence.

Dominic is a Colchester Borough Councillor representing Mile End ward, which incorporates Colchester Hospital and Colchester railway station, and is bordered by the A12. Two of the biggest issues facing residents in in Harwich & North Essex are the crisis within the NHS and the sub-standard transport links in the area.

Dominic is passionate about the NHS and is saddened by the problems which have recently faced Colchester Hospital. It is essential to employ more doctors and nurses to help ease the burden of a growing population on the local health service and make it the pride of North Essex rather than the magnet for criticism it has become.

Dominic fully endorses Liberal Democrat plans to increase NHS funding by the £8billion it needs, especially the £400million towards early support for those suffering mental health problems.

Having commuted from Colchester to London for over two years, Dominic is painfully aware of the regular difficulties facing a huge number of railway passengers week in, week out. Dominic has called for a Recall Clause to be introduced to the railway franchises, which would allow the government to cancel a poorly performing franchise.

Dominic also fully supports cross-party attempts to improve the A120, a vital link between a major port and the region's international airport. Dualling the A120 is essential to unlocking the potential of Harwich & North Essex and Dominic will continue to push for funds to be invested by the Highways Agency.
