Councillor Michael Donin – The Best Choice for Durrington Ward

Borough Councillor Michael Donin

 I was born in Toronto and brought up in Montreal, and have a son and a daughter who now is married and lives in Vancouver.

I arrived in the UK in 1976 with my family and joined John Lewis in Manchester where I managed the Hair and Beauty department which had, at that time, a staff of 48.

I then took a position with Wella UK Ltd.   Wella was a worldwide company which had many brands in its portfolio. I worked as a salesman and as a System Professional Specialist and was responsible for the sales and distribution of the company’s System Professional brand in the South East region which included 7 salesman and 1 area manager. Wella UK Ltd. Was taken over by Proctor and Gamble and I eventually retired from Proctor after 31 years.

After 3 months of retirement I found I needed a new challenge but one without the same pressures of travelling and high targets.  I joined the Nat/West Bank and worked part time for another 5 years.

At around the same time I stood for and became a Councillor in Durrington and have served the community for 6 years, fighting on behalf of residents in respect of various issues and concerns, ranging from residents planning issues, potholes, weeds, traffic control, social problems and crime reduction.

During my 6 years as a local Councillor, I have served on the Committees for Licensing, Planning, Audit & Governance and Overview  and Scrutiny.
