Profile:

Helen is an active community campaigner and a former Sedgemoor and Highbridge & Burnham Town Councillor.

Burnham is an amazing place to live, and great for local families and businesses to grow. We are extremely lucky, but our local Government suffers from terrible complacency, inertia and for too long, our area has suffered from a chronic lack of investment.

Real change and economic development can only be achieved if Sedgemoor works in partnership with local communities and businesses, whose opinions should not be brushed aside.

At this time there is too little interaction and public oversight of decisions being made, all of which have a profound impact upon our daily lives. This must change.

I want any Council Tax increase to be directed towards services which are so desperately needed, rather than increasing senior Councillors’ allowances.

I want those who must live and work with the consequences of decisions made by Sedgemoor to be given a greater say in the decision-making process.

When you cast your vote, ask yourself which candidate will actually do this?
