Party: Somerset County Gazette: ElectionsModule Party Logo Liberal Democrat


Eamonn Leniston has lived in Monkton Heathfield for nearly 40 years.

He joined Avon and Somerset Constabulary in Taunton in 1994 as a Special Constable and in 2003 became on of the first PCSO’s in Somerset.

Now retired, during his time in the police he was a Union Representative, as well as covering many beats including West Monkton and Monkton Heathfield.

He got to know the area and its residents extremely well during this period, and was inspired through this to try and help the community by offering himself as a local councillor.

Eamonn decided to become a candidate for the Liberal Democrats as he felt that ordinary people weren’t being heard, and because he didn’t like what was happening to the local area.

He wants to promote effective partnership action to combat crime and anti-social behaviour, like the Crime Reduction Partnership axed by the Conservatives in 2014.
