I'm a retired fire-fighter and a well know green activist and I'm also the Taunton Labour environmental spokesperson.

Having lived in Priorswood for over 40 years, I have a strong identity with the area and am aware of many of the problems the residents face, as well as the benefits of living in North Taunton

As a candidate for the Labour & Co-Operative Party I believe in their shared values. The guiding value and principle of cooperation is one that I use in my day to day life.

Things work best when ordinary people have a voice and when services are accountable to the people who use them.

We need better public transport, cycling and walking routes, housing and social amenities. Anti-social behaviour and littering are a blight on Taunton. Councillors and residents need to work together to eradicate them.
