Profile:

I have  lived in Watchet for 22 years and been a town councillor for 20.  Am standing as an independent because I believe  there should not be Party politics in local councils. I promise, if elected,  to work hard for the residents of Watchet, Williton and Sampford Brett to ensure they are not forgotten or passed over  as there will  only be 3 councillors for our area on the new District Council.
I will put forward ideas and support initiatives for:
a better transport system, help for schools and nurseries, tourism, climate change including getting rid of plastic use, better WiFi and mobile coverage, help for more businesses to start up to create more jobs, support for the elderly in their own homes.  An increase in  affordable housing,  to rent or buy,  for those who want to stay in the area where they have grown up.   
Most of all to ensure there is  the infrastructure to support all of the above.
