I want to represent you. I want to see a Frome fit for all and to carry on the good work of the Independent town council and continue to invest in the town.
By day, I am a Pensions Manager for a £1.6 billion pension fund with 30 years pension experience. By night, MC of the Submarine Comedy Club, bringing laughter to Frome on a regular basis – both should prove useful as a Councillor.
I am not interested in corrosive party politics but wants a Frome everyone can be proud of and more importantly feel a part of.
I’m for Frome
I have been Leader of the Council for the last three years which has been a privilege and great fun. I was one of the original founders of IfF after attending a Town Council meeting and thinking, “ we can surely do better than that!”
I am particularly keen that the Town Council does things right (efficiency) and does the right things (effectiveness). We have revamped the whole council, stuck to budgets and made lots of things happen. At least now Frome has a sense of direction which makes us stand out from neighbouring towns.
If elected for the next 4 years I would like to concentrate on getting more decisions made in Frome by Frome people. That’s when the best decisions are made…and in half the time. It’s going to be tough the government plans at least another £35b worth of cuts so towns like ours have to concentrate on being smart, resourceful and determined.
