Darryl was elected to represent Rawcliffe and Clifton Without in May 2019. He is the youngest councillor ever elected to City of York Council.
Darryl lives in Clifton Without, and enjoys getting involved in the local community, from being an active member of Friends of Clifton Backies to volunteering as a snow warden.
He takes a keen interest in seeing local services delivered properly, for the benefit of residents. This passion has been long-held; aged sixteen Darryl successfully challenged the Conservatives running Lincolnshire County Council over their street light switch-off policy, gathering more than 4000 residents signatures in a petition.
In his spare time, Darryl enjoys cycling, travelling and playing squash.
Following the 2019 Local Elections, Darryl was appointed to the role of Executive Member for Culture, Leisure and Communities. His portfolio covers:
Community Consultation and Engagement, Ward Committees, Community Centres, Volunteering, Equalities, Parish Council liaison, Leisure and Sport, Tourism, Arts, Culture and Heritage, Libraries and Adult Education and Lifelong Learning.
