MY name is Richard Scammell.

I am retired with a wife and two grown up children.

Somerset born and bred, I moved to Bridgwater with my wife and infant son in 1966 and have been a resident of the town ever since. 

In 2015 I was elected as a UKIP councillor on Sedgemoor District Council where I also served on the Council’s development committee.

Working on the development committee has been of great interest and no little responsibility but the work which gives me the greatest pleasure is when I have been able to help the residents of my ward with everyday problems which can adversely affect their quality of life and which are often overlooked by those in authority.

Examples are waste disposal, potentially dangerous pavements, roads and kerbs which particularly hinder those with “mobility problems”.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to serve not only the people of Bridgwater Dunwear Ward but also the wider community in Sedgemoor and I hope to be returned so that I may continue to represent them.
