Newly elected councillors for Dacorum Borough Council are delighted with their appointments and are looking forward to serving their respected areas.
Councillor Alan Johnson, Conservatives, held the seat for Kings Langley alongside other Conservative, cllr Alan Anderson.
Speaking to KingsNews, cllr Johnson said he is looking at improving facilities for teenagers and wants to focus on improving the issue of obesity in Hertfordshire.
He said: “I am very keen on providing more facilities for the teenage years. We have a lot of provisions for those who are at preschool but we don’t have a great deal for the young people. I am conscious that we need to think of other things that we can be doing to help this.
“We have also been fighting for the new hospital for years now but it is a particular concern about the health of the population in terms of obesity in and around Hertfordshire which is another issue I will be trying to tackle.”
Cllr Johnson said he was thrilled with being elected and knows the tough task on hand to meet the government’s demands of the local plan.
Independent candidate cllr Jan Maddern received 64 per cent of the votes for the Nash Mills seat which blew her away.
She said: “Firstly it feels amazing that I received a majority with being an Independent candidate, it is incredible. My plans are to continure serving my community and making sure Nash Mills keeps its community feel. I will be working with the parish council to ensure this.
“I will still be campaigning for the hospital and am remaining passionate about planning and greenspace and housing in Dacorum.”
