Thanks for taking the time to read this. My name is David Spender and I'm one of two Liberal Democrat Councillors for the Oliver's Battery & Badger Farm Ward of Winchester City Council. I was elected in September 2005 at a by-election and am therefore the most recent recruit to the City Council. I live in Oliver's Battery and have been a LibDem (and previously Liberal) member and activist since university. From 1982 to 1986 I was a councillor in the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham, but this is my first serious move back into local politics since arriving in Winchester some 20 years ago.
I hope my blog will be of interest to colleagues and constituents....and that somebody, somewhere reads it! I'll be trying to keep it up-to-date with news of the City Council and, especially, of Oliver's Battery and Badger Farm.
