The local community and our environment are something I feel passionately about. During the last 4 years, I have fought hard for our local communities particularly in Housing & Jobs which go hand-in-hand and environment-climate change, throwaway plastics etc and if re-elected I will continue to do more of the same, by working with all Councillors whatever their party to continue to make Somerset West & Taunton a conclusive council.

I have lived in the Dulverton and surrounding area for nearly 20 years. For a number of years, I served as a Councillor and later as Mayor and Chairman on Dulverton Town Council stepping down in 2018. Before moving to the west country I worked for a number of UK and multinational corporations and this experience has given me a sound working knowledge of business practice. Although I consider local Councillors benefits from commercial experience it is just as important to remember that we are a community surrounded by beautiful countryside and I believe this is worth fighting for
