Getting things done to help local people means rolling up sleeves and standing up for personal beliefs. I have never been afraid to speak my mind on issues that matter. I am a determined campaigner when it comes to protecting the interests of constituents. I will always fight hard. This constituency first sent me to Parliament in 2001. Since then I have learned the skills of persuasion in Whitehall. West Somerset is my home and my passion. I want the best for everybody I hope you will consider voting for me at this election.
