Rod was elected by Staplegrove residents as their County Councillor in May 2017. He lives in the Norton Fitzwarren and Staplegrove Ward and is married. His background is military and business change.

He acts on current concerns while looking ahead. Concerns include Norton’s flood protection, littering, activity for young people, the Staplegrove drop down road, the spine road and Kingston staying separate from Taunton. Villages are being forced to get bigger without getting better.

Looking ahead, Rod says the new Ward has to be listened to. We need new thinking and new energy in the new Council. We have to provide the right facilities to match new housing. We have to do more with less. The Garden Town is an opportunity we must take.

Rod is an effective councillor who will represent residents full time, is well connected with SCC, and who will get things done for those he serves.
