Cllr Thomas Sutton
Elected May 2019
Originally hailing from near Newcastle, if someone had asked me ten years ago if I was going to lay down my roots in Bradford, I would have been rather puzzled. However after several years of living in this beautiful part of the world and working for a local social landlord, I have come to see Baildon as my home.
As a resident of the Baildon South ward, I understand the area and the pressures it faces in comparison to other parts of Baildon and other parts of Bradford as a whole.
My experience of managing big teams of people and my interaction with people of all types of background over the years (from MPs at one end of the spectrum to people needing welfare assistance at the other) stands me in good stead to be an advocate of the area and able to take in the views of all residents of the ward, whatever the issues.
