MEET THE CANDIDATES: Adam Triggs (Conservative)
ADAM Triggs stands for Fenland District Council for the first time in March West, as a Conservative candidate.
THIS is the first time Adam has stood as a district councillor. He first moved to March when he was five.
While growing up in March, Adam studied Business Studies and Leisure Management at Peterborough Regional College and played rugby and hockey for the town.
In his teenage years he worked as a lifeguard at the George Campbell pool. At 19 Adam moved away.
While away he met and married Samantha and after 10 years they decided to move back home to March to raise their children. All three children attend local schools.

He has also held fundraising events for NSPCC, the Tsunami appeal and on occasion has helped the March Ladies Children’s Charities.

Adam runs a local company, employing local people and is passionate about the town and Fenland. Working closely with existing and experienced Councillors, Adam is confident that his own personal and business experiences, along with his passion and enthusiasm will offer a benefit to the team.
His promise is that he will do everything for the benefit of this ward and the district.
If Adam were to win a seat in the election in May, he would look to build on the good work already done and learn as quickly as possible alongside existing councillors.
