Ross is the Liberal Democrat candidate for Copnor Ward in the 2019 local elections.

He then studied BSc Geology (Hons) at the University of Portsmouth before completing 120 credits of postgraduate studies in Business and Management. During his time at University, he founded the Society of Economic Geologists Student Chapter which aims to provide networking opportunities for students who want to work in the earth sciences, and also worked as a technical assistant for the University.
Ross is very passionate about international relations and has conducted work with a policy think tank that advised the US State Department and a Canadian parliamentary group on refugees and displaced person movement, economics and trade within Iraqi Kurdistan. He was also elected as a Young Liberal International Committee member and develops relations with international youth organisations at conferences such as European Liberal Youth (LYMEC). Ross is the Youth Representative on the Portsmouth Liberal Democrats and is on the Portsmouth Young Liberals executive.
During his time in Portsmouth, Ross has worked on campaigns aiming at saving features of our community such as the Aviary in College Park and Victoria Park, volunteered with homelessness groups around the city and helping residents of Copnor with issues in their area. Tackling issues such as the environment, sea defences, homelessness and providing quality housing are at the forefront of what Ross stands for.
