Garry Porter

Garry is a retired RAF officer.  As an air commodore, he commanded all RAF forces assigned to operations in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2005/6 - he is no stranger to difficult situations - more recently, he was a member of the Lib Dem Defence Policy Working Group. Garry says: The Swindon Liberal Democrats want to extend the Retail Relief Scheme and introduce free parking for the first hour in Old Town to help local businesses, but I know we will have a fight on our hands now the Council are focussed on cutting costs. Local businesses are the life-blood of our economy and the Liberal Democrats will do everything we can to support them.
