Life and career
Quince has been one of the representatives for Prettygate ward on Colchester Borough Council since the 2011 local election, and served as leader of the Conservative group on the council from 2011 to 2014, when he stepped down to focus on the then forthcoming general election.
Quince also stood for Colchester at the 2010 general election, coming second behind Russell.
Quince has stated that his computer is routinely left unlocked to enable staff to use it if they want to.
On 6 September 2016, Quince auditioned for the popular TV show Britain's Got Talent after a bet by a local constituent Scott Everest on Twitter, in order to raise money for charity. £1000 was raised for local charities.
