Kenneth Michael (Ken) Carpenter

Standing For:

Worcester City Council

Battenhall Ward

Worcestershire County Council

St Peter Division

Ken was educated in Cambridge and joined RSRE in 1987, where he worked in an international team on an airborne collision avoidance system that is now carried on nearly all passenger aircraft.

He has been a Malvern Hills Councillor for eight years and a Worcester City Councillor for four years. He has three children and three grandchildren, and married Sue when he moved to Worcester in 2005.

Politicians evade; I hope I do not. If elected, I will listen and represent the interests of St Peters and Battenhall. I want Worcester to be vibrant and community focused, with clean air, and green spaces. Public transport needs to be attractive, frequent and stitched together, so that use of the car can be reduced.
The City and the County need to prepare for further climate change and work to be carbon neutral. We need a green economy and skilled employees. Social care needs better funding and a closer relationship with the NHS, and personal carers need increased support.

Ken’s Priorities

  • Working to ensure the needs of residents are met.

  • Improving waste and recycling for a greener future.

  • Supporting local businesses to thrive and making Worcester a great location for business.

  • Improve cycling facilities by increasing, maintaining and improving cycle paths and cycle storage.

  • Ease congestion by ensuring public transport meets the needs of the community
