Ross grew up on the Wirral before leaving to become a volunteer teacher in South America and then to study at the University of Portsmouth. There, he took up local campaigns to save community assets such as park aviaries, protect water supplies from oil and gas drilling, and volunteer with the homeless. He has since worked in a range of careers such as commercial printing, political campaigning, and customer service in both the energy and finance sectors.
Ross now lives and works locally in the ward. He's noticed that more needs to be done to clean up our alleyways, provide help to families who are put under pressure by the cost-of-living crisis, and prevent antisocial behaviour in the area. He believes that the council, by working with local businesses, charities, and community groups, can achieve a lot more to make the area prosperous and to help anybody who asks for it.
