Cllr Michael Smith
20 Cook Avenue, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 2LL
I have lived within my ward for over 7 years and I feel that I really understand the local area and issues within the ward.
I am a single father to a 7 year old son.
I enjoy supporting people and have recently completed Citizen Advise First Aider training which allows me to help in the community and signpost people to available help and support as and when they need it.
I have also recently helped to set up a new Island charity, of which I am a treasurer, called the IOW 70/30 Campaign. Our main goal is to reduce the adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) of child abuse, neglect and children witnessing domestic violence by at least 70% by 2030.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to represent my ward and I look forward to what it may bring.
