Anthony Lowe, who was the market town’s Mayor in 2019, is standing for election primarily because he believes The Wrekin needs "stronger local representation in parliament".

He now volunteers for the Wellington Cycle Delivery Scheme, which offers free delivery service from local businesses to residents, and is a trustee of Shropshire Cycle Hub.
