Petersfield St Peters


David Podger – EHDC Petersfield St Peters

I live in St Peter’s Ward. I am married with four children all of whom went to local state schools. I currently work in business development for a national charity. I’ve had a wide and varied career, which started as a volunteer with VSO in East Africa and has covered board-level roles in the private sector, education and not-for-profits.

I have campaigned on regional and national issues from safe road crossings, protecting Hampshire’s school budgets to demanding a People’s Vote on our future relationship with Europe. I am a voluntary fundraiser for various local and national charities.

My priorities for East Hampshire include fighting for more affordable housing, closer scrutiny of the Council’s investment policy and bringing back local area committees to make decision-making more representative of residents’ views.

If elected to the East Hants District Council, I will work hard to ensure that decisions are made in the best interests of all Petersfield residents.

Phil Shaw – EHDC Petersfield St Peters

My wife and I have lived in Petersfield for over 34 years. I came to the area in the 1970s when I joined the Royal Navy and fell in love with the town. My working life was spent serving society and my local community. After 24 years in the Royal Navy, including active service in the Falklands and the former Yugoslavia, I qualified as a Mental Health Nurse. I spent 12 years as a Community Mental Health Nurse in Petersfield before moving into clinical research and the senior NHS Management. I retired last year. I am also a Governor at a local primary school.

I am standing because I want to help shape the future of our local community.  If elected, I will represent your views and make sure Petersfield’s interests are heard. It is time for a change in East Hampshire.
