David Finch -
Leader of Essex County Council
About this blog
In this blog, I intend to provide an insight into a little of what I and the rest of my colleagues in County Hall do; how we are trying to make Essex a better place to live and work, how we are trying to improve the services we offer to you and how we are attempting to promote Essex locally, nationally and internationally.
Born in Yorkshire but brought up in the Braintree area, David Finch became leader of Essex County Council in May 2013. During his time with ECC David has held a number of positions including cabinet member for adults, health and community wellbeing and finance.
Before being elected as a councillor, David worked for a multi-national corporation as commercial director.
