My name is Tom Wilson and I have been married for 40 years and have one son.

I have recently retired from Northgate Hospital where I worked for 20 years having previously worked in the coal mining industry. I was born and have lived in the Ashington Central Ward for most of my life.  

I am a member of the Labour Party and have represented the Central Ward at both District and County level for the past 30 years. As a Town Councillor I know the problems that local people face.

Now that the A1 link road has been completed I will be focusing my efforts on the Ashington & Tyne rail link. These two projects will hopefully attract much needed business and retail investment into the town. 

I hold two surgeries a month for residents, please contact me for more information.
