Get in touch with Ant


Engineer Ant Butler has been running his own business since leaving the RAF in 2012 and, a father and grandfather, is a fervent believer in creating the best achievable environment in which families may flourish. As the Enterprise Advisor to a large Somerset comprehensive school, he acts as a conduit between the school and industry to better prepare students for either further education or for the world of work. The business Ant runs is about helping other businesses maximise the value of information as a resource in a cyber-safe manner. In addition, Ant is also a director of a business coaching company that was established to help individuals, teams and organisations reach their full potential in these financially challenging times. Ant is committed to using the skills developed during his military career and, subsequently, in business for the benefit of the community. Accordingly, he can call upon proven managerial, financial programming and commercial experience to ensure that the County’s resources and infrastructure deliver best vale-for-money to Council Tax-payers.  Never previously a member of any political party,  Ant decided to join the Labour over any of the others as its community, equality and social justice values most closely match his own. Ant Butler will be standing for Labour in Shepton Mallet.
