Profile:

The elections for our new council, SOMERSET WEST and TAUNTON, will be held on 2nd May and I want to be sure that the new ward, WILTON and SHERFORD, is properly and fully represented. Your wishes and needs will be given a strong voice if you elect me.
Elected in 2015, I am currently an Executive Councillor, having responsibility for Environmental Services as well as serving the old Manor and Wilton Ward. I take a strong interest in community activities and feel passionately about protecting our green spaces.
My Executive duties have given me responsibility for recycling. You may not know but Somerset is one of the leaders in the UK recycle industry, thanks to your help, and during the next couple of years, once we get the new trucks, we will collect and recycle even more plastic. I would also like to improve the service to flats and apartments.
I am also active in protecting the Vivary green wedge and preventing unnecessary building.
