Tony was first elected to the GLA in 2016 and re-elected in May 2021. As the West Central London Assembly Member, he covers five parliamentary constituencies and three London Boroughs: Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and the City of Westminster. The GLA works with and holds the London Mayor to account with powers which include transport, the police and strategic planning.
As well as being West Central London's GLA Member, Tony has represented Knightsbridge & Belgravia on Westminster City Council since May 2006
Tony has strong roots within both Westminster and the Royal Borough and many friends too in H&F. He was an active Young Conservative in Chelsea in the 1980s, attending campaigning and social events at the old 1a Chelsea Manor Street HQ. As well as knocking on doors across central London, as a Party volunteer, he has organised and co-chaired Conservative Party fundraising dinners with speakers as diverse as John Redwood, the late Brian Walden and Lord (Zac) Goldsmith.
Tony’s council ward shares both a physical border with RBKC and similar issues to much of West Central (over-development, transport and low-level nuisance) he has a track record over the last 15 years of successfully delivering results working with councillors, council officers and of course local people.
Outside politics, Tony has a long career in infrastructure - property and was formerly one of the youngest General Managers overseas in the Middle and the Far East for Rolls-Royce (power generation). He is now self-employed allowing him the flexibility to represent local people.
