Jason Behenna - Deputy Chair Membership

Jason moved to the leafy town of Marlow 7 years ago and has become part of the local scene, owning both his own rehabilitation business and as a parent involved in Great Marlow School Key stage 3. Jason was involved in politics for the Conservative Party in South Africa for 15yrs up until he immigrated to the UK in 2001, where he has continued to support and vote Conservative since. The divisiveness in the current political climate spurred Jason on to take the ambitious step to stand as Deputy Chair Membership and Fundraising for BCCA in a bid to help heal the divided electorate. Jason speaks 4 languages (English, Afrikaans, Dutch and Flemish) and having lived on 2 continents and in 3 countries, has a very diverse and multicultural background which helps him reach out to all communities.

Jason has recently been selected to contest Flackwell Heath, Little Marlow and Marlow SE Ward in the 2020 Buckinghamshire elections.

John Read - Deputy Chairman Political

I believe Beaconsfield Old Town has a character and a charm that is worth preserving, whilst meeting the needs of the community and business. 

I have lived in Beaconsfield for nearly twenty years. For the last eight years I have run my web consultancy firm from the Old Town and worked with a number of local businesses during that time. Although I have seen the town change, it has remained a pleasant place to live and work. I will strive to serve the town to the best of my ability whilst keeping an open and informed mind on all matters.

Luisa Sullivan

Buckinghamshire Candidate

The role of a county councillor is predominately that of a communicator. Being able to engage with all residents and community groups and balancing the needs and interests of residents, with council policy and its services, at all council tier levels.

I have been active in the community for many years, and have built solid relationships with many of our community groups. 

Over these last 25 years you’ve given me an insight and understanding of how our local community feels about their environment, its needs, its development and growth and aspirations for our younger generation.

There are many developments and projects happening in The Ivers. Alongside these, we need to plan for more community facilities, develop the road network and address the congestion problems.

We need to balance the need for housing, with affordable and cost saving initiatives like shared equity and self-build opportunities, alongside protecting our precious Green Belt and open spaces.

A tall order and this task requires your County Council representative to hold integrity, honesty and rational level thinking, to be an effective communicator, negotiator and team member, able to work with different local authority tiers and in partnership with other organisations to deliver positive outcomes for our community.

If you would like to speak to me or have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
