About Paul

Paul Holmes


I’m Paul and thanks for logging on to my page.

Here you can find out a little bit more about me and why I am standing to be your MP!

I’ve lived in South Hampshire for most of my adult life. Originally from South East London, I went to a state school before moving to Hampshire to study at Southampton University. After university, I worked locally in the food industry.

While studying and working, I served as a Councillor on Southampton City Council and the Cabinet Member for Children’s Services and Education.

More recently, I have worked in Government as an adviser to the Deputy Prime Minister and then the Education Secretary. Before being selected as the Conservative candidate for Eastleigh, I worked for the largest Housing Association in the country.

Education and housing have always been passions of mine. The right education can transform lives and help children fulfil their potential while housing is essential to help people find work and build a better life for themselves and their families.

I hope to meet as many people on the campaign as I can but if you have a question, please get in touch!
