A Councillor from a long line of well-bred parish councilors, Jack sees Barnburgh & Harlington PC (Parish Council) as a fast track to a bigger, brighter future. It is a forgotten policy area where he feels he can shine. He is attractive and secretly likes the idea of living dangerously, which is why she clicks with the local pub’s environment. It is a world away from the conservative environment he has grown up in and finds increasingly suffocating.
Feminine and sexy, there is a sense of the catwalk about Jack. And it works on men and women. He doesn’t mind being underestimated – it can be a handy tool. He also has a lot of internal conflict going on with the moral boy he was raised to be and the morally ambiguous man he has become. Jack is ashamed of his dark sexual appetite.
Jack has sympathy with the community, he’s not about to tell them, but he sees a parallel. He is questing for power too. He is not popular with the councilors & chairpersons who are suspicious of an outsider assuming he knows what "their" community need
