We need more MPs like Max - people who love Cheltenham and want to get things done for our town.
Max Wilkinson is a well-known face around Cheltenham. He's been a local Councillor here for eight years, and lives in Fairview with his wife and daughter.
Max worked as a journalist and moved to Cheltenham twelve years ago when he got a job on the local paper. His time as a reporter in Cheltenham deepened his love for the town, but also highlighted so many areas where things could be better, including housing and looking after our precious environment.
Now, he serves on Cheltenham Borough Council's Cabinet. Having spent two years fighting for our planet as Cabinet Member for Climate Change, he now serves as Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Culture, Tourism and Wellbeing. In this role he is working to protect our world-renowned culture offer, invest in the health and welfare of our town, and enhance our local High Street.
Max’s years of tireless local housing campaigning has secured £180 million to build hundreds of new affordable homes for families and young people in Cheltenham.
