Party: Bridgwater Mercury: ElectionsModule Party Logo Independent


I am standing as an Independent at the upcoming Sedgemoor District Council elections, as I firmly believe that Burnham should have a voice that can be heard at Sedgemoor. I have had the honour of serving as a councillor since 2007, and have served as Chairman of council and Mayor of Burnham On Sea & Highbridge on four occasions. Burnham is a fantastic place to live, and it’s vital that our needs and concerns are heard at Sedgemoor. After many years as a conservative councillor, I have taken the decision to stand as an independent at this election, and leave behind any party ties. The nature of local government should be influenced by local issues, and what’s best for our community, as an independent councillor I feel I will be best placed to voice those issues.

As I have witnessed on many occasions, Burnham has a wonderful community spirit, and it would be an honour for me to represent my community at Sedgemoor.
