I was born and educated in the town and have run a business here for
over 30years.
I am currently a town and Sedgemoor District councillor, and previously
a County Councillor for 8 years.
On the Town Council I am currently the Chairman of the Policy and
Finance committee which is responsible for the overall budget of the
Town Council. I have made a strong commitment to keeping our council tax
low, whist still providing quality services. The committee also reviews
those services so as to ensure they are delivered efficiently and
effectively, and above all that they offer best value. Whilst I have
been the chairman of that committee I have awarded grants to community
groups of over £153,000 of which many would struggle without Town
Council support. I believe these local clubs and organisations make this
such a pleasant and welcoming town.
I am keen to maintain and promote the Princess Theatre and Arts centre
as I believe it is a great asset for our town, it is going from strength
to strength and is a theatre to be proud of.
I will also support the chamber of trade along with other residents to
promote the prosperity of our town centre and tourism industry which is
vital to our local economy.
I am also an active member of the litter free coast initiative and
attend litter picks along our coastline. I have been astonished at the
amount of plastic washed up on our coastline and I fully support the
Town Councils plastic free initiative which was successful last year.
