Ganesh lives in Burnham, and his wife’s family came from Brent Knoll. A Chartered Accountant by profession, he is currently Financial Director for a group of care homes in the South West.  

Somerset is a popular destination for tourists. Burnham is one of Somerset’s ‘Jewels in the Crown’ and I’d like to help to support local businesses so our town goes from strength to strength.

Of course, if we don’t care for our environment all our hard work will be in vain. It is essential that we protect and enhance our landscape. This must be at the forefront of Sedgemoor Council's agenda.  

We need a supply of genuinely affordable housing, both for the next generation and for those who wish to ‘downsize’ but stay living locally.  However, we need surgeries, schools and the transport links to match any development.

I’m committed to public service - I’ve served as a local School Governor and have been an active member of the Rotary Club.

In my professional career and my community work, I specialise in bringing financial clarity to organisations. I will use that experience to do the same if elected to Sedgemoor.


My hope is that we can create an open, tolerant society where everyone has a fair start in life.
