Paul Ray

Paul has lived in Lichfield for 30 years and is married with three children. 

Paul also has family members of the older generation living in Lichfield which means he has a good understanding of the issues affecting that part of the population.

Paul has spent all his adult life in the Midlands having gone to Aston University. He works as a solicitor and is a partner in national law firm. He specialises in finance law advising in the private and public sectors and as finance is key to any business or organisation, Paul's work gives him very relevant experience of the pressures affecting business and the public sector.

Paul is a councillor on Lichfield City and District Councils for Chadsmead ward and was re-elected in 2019 and 2023 with a strong personal vote. He is a very active and committed councillor with a track record for taking time to deal with local residents’ issues relating to planning, housing, public nuisance, traffic, road safety etc.

And the key wider issues affecting Lichfield, Burntwood and the villages that Paul campaigns on are the need to ensure that we have much more affordable housing in our area and that those who are suffering due to the mismanagement of our economy by the Conservatives and the cost of living crisis get the support that they need.

The community’s health is also very important to Paul and he has actively campaigned for better leisure facilities in our district for all but in particular the young. He was a lead councillor involved in the successful campaign to stop the Conservatives in Lichfield from closing the Friary Grange Leisure Centre without building a replacement facility. That campaign was successful and a new centre is now being built.
