Party: Bridgwater Mercury: ElectionsModule Party Logo Liberal Democrat


JO lives in Cocklake with her family. She knows the area well, having joined Young Farmers in 1988, then becoming a resident, and now a parent of 3 children. 

For 30 years, Jo has worked in IT and cyber security, both in the education and defence sectors. She has served on Wedmore First School and Kings of Wessex PTAs, and been a driver and committee member for Wedmore’s Community Bus for the last 11 years. Jo is a keen fundraiser, supporting the Scouts, Guides, local churches, charities and the 3Cs Harvest Home.  

Our villages are friendly, supportive and vibrant and I’ll help preserve this by supporting local businesses, residents and workers. 

I want to build on our strengths and heritage whilst being flexible about the future and ensuring our communities contribute to a greener, cleaner planet.

To me, being a Councillor is to ensure people’s voices are heard, to help if there’s a problem and facilitate changes they want to see and make. To help as a channel for understanding “red tape” and “process” and to bring clarity.

My core values are centred on integrity, helpfulness and a desire to see and do the best for those around me. Coupled with my desire to proactively get things done in the right way, I feel these values will be key to my success as your Councillor.
