Ben was elected to East Hampshire District Council to represent Petersfield Causeway on 7th May 2015. At that time he said, "I live in Petersfield with my wife Amy and two children. I grew up in Rogate until leaving to join the Army at the age of seventeen. I spent eleven fantastic years serving in the UK and abroad whilst taking part in multiple tours of Afghanistan, along with Bosnia and Kosovo. I left military life behind five years ago and now work as a telecommunications engineer on military and government projects. I will work tirelessly with all relevant authorities to find long term solutions for Petersfield and Causeway." Ben was re-elected to East Hampshire District Council in May 2019.
