Josh Williams (Park ward councillor)

16 April 2014

Park ward candidate Josh Williams


I'm Josh Williams, Reading resident for over 15 years. From a political family, and after working for a decade in IT, I am now a writer of historical fiction, and a community activist and campaigner.

As a writer I have the flexibility to devote time to local causes.

I am passionate about my local community and over the last few years have been involved in:

  • Raising money and awareness for local charities.
  • Working with volunteers who go into local schools and provide one to one learning time with children having difficulty reading.
  • Reading RESCUE clearing up litter and flytipping.
  • Play Streets, so children can get outside and play with other children.
  • The Greens, as someone who lives in the heart of Newtown.
  • Campaigning for road safety and against dangerous parking.
  • Collecting signatures from local residents calling for 20mph zones near all our homes and schools.
  • Presenting a petition to the Full Council meeting asking them to sort out the serious traffic problems on the Wokingham Road.
  • I understand the local issues, because I am local. I will be a voice for Park, from Park.

I will:

  • work hard all year round.
  • defend our public services on the council.
  • defend our local and small businesses.
  • keep a constant watch on how decisions affect our cherished green spaces.
  • stand up for all residents of Park Ward.

I'm proud to live in Park Ward, and I'd be prouder still to represent us on the Council.
