Party: Somerset County Gazette: ElectionsModule Party Logo Independent


My primary objective is to deliver local leadership, representation and action - not party politics, political inertia and self-interest. Politicians and the Council must act differently.

I am against building on the Galmington Playing Field and open green spaces; I will champion a cleaner and enhanced High Street and town centre; I will advocate for additional resources to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour; I opposed both the merger with West Somerset Council and £7 million on refurbishing Council offices; I am concerned by the over-development of new houses without meaningful infrastructure; opportunities for Firepool need to be grasped swiftly and support inward investment and the creation of new well-paid jobs; I believe in considered leadership; public money must be put to best use with decisions made accountable; and I will readily help residents left unsupported by local government policies and procedures.
