Steve Shepherd is perhaps known best of all for running the Handi – Hire shop in Water Lane, Totton, one of the town’s longest running businesses.
However, apart from his experience and knowledge of running a business, he is a life long resident who has previous experience as both a Town and New Forest District Councillor.
His particular speciality was waste management and he has a good understanding of good environmental practices, including waste minimisation, recycling and energy from waste.
He is keen to see Totton improved and thinks that there have been opportunities missed, particularly for much needed Town centre improvements which he hopes to address.
Steve is standing for Totton East Ward in Totton & Eling Town Council
