Alex White is the Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for North Devon. His top campaign priorities are:

  • Defending our NHS & local public services in the heart of our community.
  • Tackling the climate emergency.
  • Delivering a thriving local economy for jobs, businesses and opportunities for young people.

Alex lives locally and since defeating the Conservatives in May 2019 to be elected as a Mid Devon Councillor he has served as Cabinet member for Finance. Outside of politics, Alex has played football for South Molton, is a level 3 qualified tennis coach and member of Chulmleigh Tennis Club.

Alex attended secondary school at Chulmleigh; where he was elected as the Youth Parliament member for North Devon, before going on to study European Law with German Law at Warwick University.  He worked as a consultant in London for two and a half years before completing a master’s degree in Business, Law and Management at Exeter University. After graduating, he worked as a County Court Advocate and spent a year in courtrooms across the South West, frequently visiting Barnstaple, to represent clients on a range of different legal issues. Alex has also worked for a law firm based in Barnstaple.

Alex’s experience has led him to be passionate about alleviating the disadvantages faced by the poorest in society, securing a better quality of life for our elderly, and providing the highest standards of education within our schools.

For Alex, it is important that we communicate a vision of North Devon that we all want to see for the future. We need to be supporting local services and not cutting them. North Devon needs a strong, independently-minded campaigner like Alex, who will stand up for the area and fight for the investment in our future.

Local issues will always be at the heart of Alex’s campaigning in North Devon: championing the NHS, education, the environment, farming, tourism and local industry.
