Steve Gazzard is seeking re-election to East Devon District Council, standing with him is Matt Hall
Exmouth Town Council
Steve Gazzard and Matt Hall have been been elected to the Town Council in an uncontested election.
Steve is currently Mayor of Exmouth, representing Withycombe Raleigh on East Devon and Exmouth Town Councils. Exmouth-born, he was educated at Marpool Primary (where he was later a Governor) and at what is now the Community College. After school, he took an apprenticeship with the “Exmouth Journal”, qualifying as a compositor. He later joined Devon Ambulance Service, serving as an ambulanceman for twenty years before failing eyesight ended his career. After the death of his daughter, Sarah Wright, from a chronic lung condition while awaiting an organ transplant, Steve has campaigned ceaselessly to increase the number of registered donors and to change the law.
Matt loves living in Exmouth, a town he has come to know through his wife, Anne, who was brought up in Littleham. Matt has over twelve years’ experience of local government, having served as a Councillor at Town, District, County and Unitary level in Dorset. He currently works as a town planner in Exeter after retraining at the University of the West of England in Bristol.
Matt wants to use his knowledge and experience of local government to help the town he calls home and to make sure the voices of the residents of Withycombe Raleigh are heard in the District and Town Councils.
