More about Graham…

Graham was born and educated in Portsmouth. He has a degree in Historical Studies from Portsmouth Polytechnic, gained in 1980, and completed a doctorate from the University of Southampton in 2003, combining part-time study while working.

He now works at the University of Portsmouth as a lecturer in Politics.

Graham has a wide range of experience having worked in a university library, for a mental health charity and managed student accommodation at a university. He has also been a self-employed consultant working with the Centre for Public Scrutiny on projects to promote public involvement in the delivery of health services.  He was a non-executive director of the former Portsmouth Healthcare NHS Trust. He has chaired the board of the Portsmouth Foyer, a housing project supporting young people and is currently the Chairman of Healthwatch Portsmouth an organisation that promotes public involvement in decisions about health and care services in the city.

Graham served Cosham as a councillor from 1995 – 2004 and chaired the Housing Committee for five years overseeing a significant increase in spending to improve people’s homes, stabilising council house rent increases and introducing more tenant participation in decisions about their housing. He has been a school governor at Medina Primary School for around 20 years.

Graham regularly shops in Southsea and shares the concern of many about the future of businesses in Palmerston Road. Graham said;

“I have many friends in the area who I often see and I understand why so many people like living here. I want to work with local businesses to ensure they have a viable future. We also need a more coordinated approach from the city council to deal with the issues around parking in the area”.
