James

I run a small headhunting company and work in-house in the HR and recruitment teams for 2 leading city law firms. I have 2 young children, am on the Board of Governors at our local village school and am Chair of the PTA. My family has always been involved in local and national politics, and believe that it's the general public that can actually make a real difference. Working in the City has made me realise that the countryside is often over looked, and I am keen to make sure that people from small villages are also listened to.

Max Langer

Max grew up in the area, attending Blakeley Primary School and going to secondary school nearby before moving to Bristol for University. He earned a degree in Film and TV with Innovation, working on projects to improve sustainability in rural communities and to engage disenfranchised constituents in politics.

Since graduating, Max has worked in campaigns and communications working to support and engage local people in the democratic process.
He is standing for Council because he believes that the Conservatives have taken our area for granted for far too long. When he speaks to local people, they can't tell him who our current Conservative councillor is. The same Councillor who, along with their Conservative colleagues, has allowed our county to go bankrupt, costing the taxpayer millions of pounds to establish the new authority of West Northamptonshire.
Max's priorities are:
- To improve connectivity in our region, so everyone can access training and job opportunities to get ahead.
- To put local people first. Max will work hard to listen to local residents and make your priorities his own. 
- To put sustainability first in everything the Council does. By harnessing the Green Industrial Revolution we can both create high-quality local jobs and reduce local emissions to improve wellbeing and tackle the climate emergency.
