Jack was elected as a town councillor in 2016 and as a district councillor in May 2019 for Pennington, the village he has lived in all his life. As an experienced Town Councillor, Jack has been heavily involved in campaigns to protect public services, especially local bus routes, from being axed by the Conservatives.
As the the Liberal Democrat Housing Spokesperson on New Forest District Council, Jack has led the fight for more affordable homes in the New Forest for young people and local families; including committing the council to trialling a shared housing scheme for young people.
