I have decided to stand for the Parish and Borough elections, as an Independent. I was motivated to do this as I am not happy with the lack of fight shown by our existing Councillors against cuts to our local facilities and services like Bishops Lydeard library and Somerset bus services. I have also found, through using village online forums and Facebook pages that there are many issues that concern people that Councillors are simply not addressing. Unlike the LibDems and Tories, as an Independent Councillor, I will not have to follow any party policy; I will simply do what is in the best interests of our villages – Bishops Lydeard, Cotford St Luke, West Bagborough, Combe Florey, Ash Priors, Cothelstone and Halse. Check out this website to see what stand for. I hope you’ll support my agenda and vote for me on 5th May…….
