Trevor, who has lived in Dursley and Cam all his life, formerly worked at Lister’s and Cam Mills.
He said: “I represented people when I was the shop steward at work and I look forward to representing people now I’m retired.
“I’m proud of what our Labour-led council has achieved in Dursley. It’s a town on the up, with new shops, new homes, new restaurants, The Pulse – and I want that success to continue.
“I will be a strong voice for local people, whether that’s campaigning to save the 62 bus or standing up for local businesses. People know they can trust me to stand up for them.”
Trevor hopes to succeed Alison Hayward, who resigned last week because she is moving away from the area.
He said: “Alison will be a hard act to follow. I know how hard she worked for the town, and I know how much she’ll be missed, both as a councillor and as a friend. I wish her the very best for the future.”
