Cllr Paul Ainsley – 07903 004883
Paul is married with two daughters and has been resident in Oakham for over 23 years.
He is a decorated former member of the Royal Air Force and has seen service in the UK, Germany, Oman, and Singapore. Since retiring from his last position as a Data Governance Manager for a global leader in engineering and industrial software, he has been an active volunteer across Leicestershire and Rutland with the Youth Justice Service.
Paul was elected to the Oakham North-West Ward in May 2019. He recently chaired the GP Practice Task and Finish Group, which investigated residents’ concerns about GP access. The Group’s recommendations have been adopted by the Health and Wellbeing Board, which will ensure that the voices of Rutland residents will continue to be heard and acted upon when considering access to primary care.
Whilst acting as chairman of the Children and Young People Scrutiny Committee in early 2022, he brought parents and carers’ SEND concerns to the committee at a critical moment in the relationship between groups of SEND parents and Rutland County Council, and recommendations were made to help prevent further escalation.
He has the proven ability to deal with residents’ concerns and achieve necessary change. He believes that there needs to be a particular focus on affordable housing and meaningful employment to allow our young people and families to remain in Rutland.
He has fun tinkering with electronics and the internet-of-things in his spare time and now enjoys watching rugby from the touchline.
