Party: Somerset County Gazette: ElectionsModule Party Logo Independent


I am standing as an Independent in this election as I wish to represent the residents of Wellington East without being tied to any political party. With the formation of the new Somerset West and Taunton Council, I feel that it is even more important to speak out and gain support for our area so that Wellington is not ignored in order to support West Somerset. I was against the Conservative administration pushing through the council merger and I want to ensure that Wellington gets its fair share. I have served on Wellington Town Council for 12 years and am currently deputy mayor and was mayor 2015-16. I was a member of the town council’s working party to save Wellington library. I now want to service Wellington on the district council. I want to see better transport links between Wellington and Taunton to support our growing town, preservation of our heritage, Fox’s Mill, more affordable housing allocated on the new developments in the area and to keep our town a lovely place in which to live.
