Profile:

Mae lives in Rooksbridge with her family, having moved from Brean. Her teenage son attends a local school.

Her professional and voluntary life and work has been dedicated to public service in the community. She spent 14 years caring for her disabled son.

Mae is a senior committee member for the NHS campaign ICON which safeguards new babies and supports parents.  She has held a wide variety of roles, including being an active Councillor in another area and she has served as a School Governor.

Mae has worked at a Special Needs School, spent 5 years supporting families at Barnardos and she volunteers at Weston Hospice offering emotional support to patients and carers.

I’ve watched as Sedgemoor has ridden rough-shod over community views and comments and I’m appalled at the disdain with which local residents’ opinions are treated.  

Our rural communities need Councillors who will listen, and will seek out those who often go unseen and unheard, but need support.  

I felt privileged to be the bridge between the Council and the people in my ward when I was a Councillor in Leicester. I’m ready to take that role on again.

With my experience of helping people, I feel I have the empathy and understanding to make the most of the role of local Councillor.  I have the time, energy and interest to make things happen.
