I am excited to share my manifesto for Yatton, Claverham, Kingston Seymour and Kenn – as for North Somerset Council on 2nd May.
The role of councillor is complex, challenging… and changing. I believe I am the only candidate in Yatton ward to set out my local priorities that explain what I’d do if elected.
This is a significant moment in the evolution of our community. The question now is how best we shape the inevitable growth… while at the same time protect and enhance what is most special to us.
I am placing community cohesion & resilience, and transparency, at the heart of my campaign.
North Somerset Council faces tough choices every day, but we have to change the way business is done. I want more openness and better communication between the Council and the community. I feel that I can do something positive and tangible… rather than simply hold others to account all the time.
If elected, I will bring some energy and purpose to my role – which is representing the community to the council, not to simply justify Council decisions to the community.
Thank you for reading… and (hopefully) for your support.
these are my top priorities:
