Barton: Louise Jones

I was born and bred in this city and I am raising my family here. I run a business in Canterbury and I strongly believe our local democracy needs to be more representative of those it serves – people of all ages, people studying, people working and people with families.

I am immensely proud of Canterbury and wish to assist its continued development and improvement for everyone who lives and works here.

After attending Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School I studied Law at University to a Masters Level. I then worked in the legal industry before returning home in 2010 to run my family’s business, which has been in Canterbury since 1987.

I feel passionately about engaging young people in business and passing on the life skills needed for success in working life.

I also have a focus on crime reduction across the city and I am a board member of Canterbury’s District Watch.

I look forward to meeting many of you  soon.
