It matters who Priorswood voters choose on May 2nd, and every vote counts. The community needs three committed local representatives working together.

My roots are in Priorswood, and as county councillor in the 1990s I started the North Taunton Partnership which secured the lease for Priorswood’s Community Centre. I made the case for free-use computers in the library, and have fought to save it from closure in 2011 and 2018. Right now I’m campaigning with other Labour candidates to convince the new council to secure the future of Taunton’s main post office by taking over the franchise.

These are dark and difficult times for anyone on a limited income. Crucial services have been cut to the bone; too many households are suffering insecurity, hardship, and enforced homelessness.

My priority is that everything the council does should create a fair, secure and sustainable environment where people from all backgrounds can flourish.
