Tony Howard

Telephone: 01404 811275

Tony and his wife Pam moved to West Hill in 2000 from Buckinghamshire. Tony’s interests include golf , gardening, DIY and coastal walks.

Tony is a past chairman and past treasurer of the West Hill branch of the Conservative Party. Tony is a past chairman and secretary of the local Royal British Legion and now an officer in RBL for Devon. Tony served in RAF during his National Service.  Tony is also a member of the Otter Vale Probus Club and of the Musgrave Club.

Tony worked in the car industry for 35 years in both UK and overseas assignments.  He held executive positions in General Motors in the Finance and Audit departments.  The large US company environment was not for the faint hearted.  They were at the forefront of empowerment and teamwork as a means of sustaining growth and investment.  A similar environment exists in the political scene today.  If we are to avoid stagnation we must fuel the economic cycle with investment.  I feel the Conservative team on East Devon District Council are following the right agenda in consulting with residents and business in finding the optimum solution to sustainable controlled growth in the region.

Tony says ‘ We will also do all that we can to support local shops, pubs and businesses including fighting the current threat to our post offices, especially keeping the range of services available in our existing outlets.
