I was a member of Taunton Deane Borough Council from 1999 – 2008 as Councillor for Priorswood.  I was a cabinet member with responsibility for Economic Development and a part of the original Vision for Taunton committee, hence my great disappointment at the lack of progress made in the last 10 years.  I lived in Curland for 16 years and am acutely aware of the challenges now confronting a largely rural community.  The savage cuts so readily accepted by our Local Authorities have been extremely damaging.

If elected I will immediately try to improve communication between my constituents and the council, particularly now that it is responsible for a larger area and increased population, and will work continuously on your behalf as I did in Priorswood.
