William Rutherford (Treasurer)

Growing up in a political active family, William started delivering election leaflets while still at primary school, and has been an active member fr the Party for over 25 years.  When he moved o Tunbridge wells in 2000 it was natural that he would get involved in the local Association.  What he enjoys most about local politics is the oppertunity to hear peoples opinions on the doorsteps - always the best way to find out what really matters to voters.

Having originally trained as a chartered accountant William now works as an investment manager for a pension scheme in London.  He is a qualified skipper, and has in the past competed in regattas accross Europe, as wll as long-distance ocean races.  Nowadays in his spare time he is more likely to be found on dry land, working with his wife to renovate their garden, looking after the bees and chickens and enjoying the countryside around Tunbridge Wells.
