Richard Harris was born in St Albans and has lived all his life in the city. He has lived in Marshalswick South for forty years and his children and now his grandchildren attend local schools. Richard, now retired from his work as a Business Management Systems Manager for a major international consultancy, will dedicate his time to working for the residents of Marshalswick South. Being such a long term resident he understands the concerns of many residents on the growing traffic problems which include the speed of traffic, pollution and the residents parking schemes which are now simply moving cars form the centre onto other roads in the area creating many problems there. The Bernards Heath play area is enjoyed by very many local children but still there are no play areas off Valley Road for the local children who live in the large estate there.
