About Aron Taylor

I will always speak up for what I know to be right, even if what I'm saying is unpopular. And I'm willing to take any abuse or hard hits for doing it. All so that others don't have to.

Background

On the 8th of January 1997, I was born in the cracking Cumbrian town of Kendal, and unlike some seeking political clout, I'm not going to lie to you and pretend that I've had it hard or that I'm the chosen one.

 

My fantastic family isn't poor, but it isn't rich either. I don't do my business in the back garden, but I also don't have the glory of doing it on a solid gold throne either. My dependable dad is a plumber, my magnificent mum works with special needs children and my glowing grandparents own a lovely farm in the Lake District.

Education

Between 2008 and 2015, I attended Kirkbie Kendal - a school with specialist status in business and enterprise. Somehow, I managed to leave with nothing less than an equivalent C grade in both my GCSE's and A-Levels.

 

A bootless attempt at a brag, I know, but I still see it as a shod-free achievement. Especially when you consider that I spent most of my time tinkering around with my fantasy football team and reading into the UK's rotten relationship with the EU. But please don't tell the mother.

Work

I've been in work ever since I was at school. My first two job roles were in retail. One situated in sportswear, and the other around fashion and homeware. I then went to work in foreign exchange which gave me a stepping stone to where I am now - banking.

I'm not the kind of banker who rakes in millions every year - unfortunately. Instead, I'm the kind of banker who has the honour of sitting down in meetings with lovely local people daily. All with the aim of making their finances a shining success.

Politics

I first got into politics in 2014, when I started campaigning to leave the EU. Since then, my passion for politics as a whole has sky-rocketed. In 2016, after watching (and hating) how badly the Lib Dems were treating South Lakeland, I joined the Westmorland Conservatives.

My mission for our people's magnificent success starts locally. I've had the privilege to stand in elections and canvass (or you might rightly say 'bother') many people on the doorstep. It could be worse - at least I'm not coming round trying to sell you cheap and nasty windows.

Beliefs

Locally in the South Lakes, I want our priority to invest the people's money in their priorities. I want to stop stupid spending so that we can cut council tax. I want to reverse the council policy of rip-off car parking charges. I want housing here to be affordable in nature and not just in name.

Nationally, I want solid action for the NHS, rather than just call to 'chuck money at it'. I want to purge political correctness and protect free speech and thought. I want us to come down a heck of a lot harder on crime and terrorists. I want to give children from poor backgrounds the tools to harness their full potential.
