As a local Councillor for eight years I have seen the transformation of Taunton Deane into the new Somerset West and Taunton Council (SWT) which now stretches from Exmoor to the Levels.


This new Council emerged from severe and wide-reaching local government cuts. During this upheaval experienced staff were lost and so SWT needs councillors with the knowledge and experience, like myself, to drive it forward.


SWT will use modern technologies to deliver services but it is important that these services work for you and are accessible when needed. I will work hard to make sure this happens.


I have lived with my family in Milverton for 30 years and been Milverton's Parish Clerk for almost 20 years. I understand the area, its communities and its issues. After a career in nature conservation I am also a strong advocate of protecting our environment for future generations.
