After serving for 20 years as an Independent West Somerset District Councillor and six years as your Independent Somerset County Councillor I am now asking you to send me forward as your representative on the new Somerset West and Taunton Council.
During my years as a councillor I have always opposed party political nonsense. It is my firm belief that party posturing has no place within local authorities which are there to manage local affairs and to resolve local issues in the best interests of the local people.
But most importantly I believe I shall be able to offer the benefit of my extensive local knowledge in helping to give West Somerset a powerful voice on the new but remote local authority where West Somerset councillors will be in the minority and thus where it is going to require determination and dedication to ensure that local issues are not accorded a lower priority than Taunton's.
