I hope to be re-elected so I can provide continuity between the outgoing council and the new one.
I want to reach groups who may feel left out as they fall between gaps, being neither the disadvantaged in the town nor those who moved here for the lifestyle.
I want to work with local people to help make our wonderful town a place where residents feel that they are listened to, where they have the opportunity to be active and involved in shaping how Frome remains a vibrant, diverse and welcoming community.
My background is in policing. I’m running as an IfF candidate as I am passionate about my town and want to use my skills and experience to help make Frome a place where people continue to live and work together and build a safe, friendly and inclusive community.
