About Mayor Peter Taylor:
Peter lives in Watford with his wife Rachel and their three children, and has been a councillor since 2012.
Since becoming Mayor of Watford, Peter has achieved record recycling rates and the town has won a record number of Green Flag Awards for our parks and green spaces. He has fulfilled manifesto commitments including introducing the Beryl bike-share scheme, investing in state of the art skating facilities at Oxhey Activity Park and reducing homelessness in the town.
Peter was the deputy mayor and cabinet member responsible for parks, recycling, street cleaning, leisure centres and theatres. He also worked closely with her on major projects in the town.
Peter studied at the University of Edinburgh and worked in the Houses of Parliament before moving to Watford to work as a teacher. He has continued working in education and currently the assistant director of a national network of over 2,000 schools.
Peter became a councillor shortly after the birth of his second child, he decided he wanted to work with local residents to make sure Watford had the best possible services. He was impressed with the way Dorothy and the Lib Dems were running the town and wanted to be part of the team.
Peter enjoys being able to help residents with issues and problems, from dealing with housing issues to working with local residents to help protect our climate.
