Profile:

Lee has lived in Somerset all his life, and wants to see Taunton thrive, not stagnate. 

He is now leader of a team providing financial advice, on behalf of a major high street bank, to agricultural businesses and farmers across the UK. 

His teenage children are all at school in Taunton. He wants to improve opportunities for local families to be able to live in good quality affordable and rented housing locally and wants the Council to stand up to developers who don't want to build enough of this kind of home.

He supports a 'resident friendly' parking policy which puts the needs of residents first. He also supports the Lib Dem policy of affordable employment areas for start-up businesses, to bring higher paid jobs into the town, and protecting our green spaces from encroachment.
