By getting involved in local issues and listening to people's concerns, I have seen the good work that can be done in our area.
If re-elected as your MP, I will be as helpful and effective as I can be. I want to listen to the concerns of everyone in our constituency, to take action and to make our towns and villages a better place to live and work, and together we will make it happen.
Before entering politics I had a career in business, including in agriculture and healthcare start-ups. In 2011 I became a South Somerset district councillor, representing Yeovil South, and in 2013 won the Coker Division from the Liberal Democrats on Somerset County Council.
