People

James Reeder - Oulton

Born in Bury St Edmunds, I lived in Stowmarket until I married and moved to Lowestoft, which has now been my home town for 35 years. After leaving school I joined the Merchant Navy, qualifying as a Deck Officer, which brought me great opportunities for travel.

Keith Robinson - Oulton

I live in my Division and I am very much a Lowestoft man, spending much of my working life as a mechanic, MOT tester, and long-distance truck driver. Being interested in promoting the concerns and interests of local people, I successfully stood for election to the Suffolk County Council in May 2017.

Craig Rivett - Pakefield

Having lived in Pakefield for over 43 years, it has been a privilege to represent the people of Pakefield and Carlton Colville on Suffolk County Council since May 2017.

Colin Noble - Row Heath

I have been a County Councillor since 2006 and was Leader of the Council from May 2015 to May 2018. I have previously served as the Cabinet Member for Finance and for Adult Social Care. Away from politics, I run a consultancy in land and planning and I’m a third-generation builder.

Gordon Jones - Samford

Having lived in Nayland since 1984, I know and much appreciate the area in which we live. I am also fully aware of the increasing challenges we face in this area but, by working together, we can achieve the best for all concerned.
