Caversham: Ian Binge (Con)

MY wife and I have lived and worked in Reading since 2006. My young son attends Highdown School and Sixth Form Centre and enjoys playing for Caversham Trent’s Football Club. I am a keen football fan and I teach Shotokan Karate every week.

I am good at managing complex change programmes, a skill developed over 40 years. A recent £300m development programme required me to manage and control the finances of 20 IT projects simultaneously.

A councillor role would give me the opportunity to contribute towards Reading’s improvement. I am interested in influencing and determining policies on:

• Improving our safety, education, health and wellbeing.

• Improving our transport infrastructure and our use of green energy.

• Improving Reading Borough Council’s management of its accounts.

I want to use my experience of business to give back to the community I live in, creating a safer, healthier and wealthier Reading.
