Cllr. Martin Potter

A lifelong Rainham resident, Martin was elected to represent his home ward of Rainham North in 2015. He has a degree in Information Technology and he is a secondary school teacher by profession. Martin joined the Council’s Cabinet as the Education Lead in 2016 and he has worked with schools and education partners to raise standards for children in Medway.
