Brian John Luckham
Candidate for Huntingdon Central Ward
I’ve lived in Huntingdon since 1993 when my career in the RAF brought me to RAF Wyton and my last uniformed assignment. In 1997 I joined the MoD as a Civil Servant and went on to complete a career spanning 14 years. I am now a partner in a local courier company. Between 1999 and 2010 I was a member of Huntingdon Town Council (HTC), including a year as Mayor in 2000/1. I held all of the major roles with the exception of Chairman of the Finance Committee
I am a Conservative at heart but showed, during my previous 3 terms on HTC, that I always worked for the people of our town, regardless of political allegiance. I would like the opportunity to do so again.
