Profile:

James has lived in West Somerset and Taunton Deane since he was twelve. He grew up in Bicknoller, and feels West Somerset is his home.

James is a Software developer and ran his own small business for years, supporting other local businesses with IT solutions.

James says: “I believe in the freedom of the individual and feel everybody should be protected from abuses of power and authoritarianism.”

To deliver this, James feels that a few key services need to be addressed, including Public Transport, Small Business Support, Affordable Housing, and Education.

James says: “If you elect me, I will fight to make sure the needs of West Somerset are not ignored any longer.”

As a parish councillor he has fought against developments that do not offer enough social housing and has also fought with groups such a Frack Free EQS to protect our local area from the dangers of fracking.
