I’M PROUD to have represented Burnham, Highbridge and the surrounding villages for five years as your MP.

I’ve met tens of thousands of constituents seeking help with problems, from a lack of housing, the growing misery of welfare cuts and constraints on healthcare.

I’ve got to grips with problems by listening, understanding and reacting. I believe I’ve a better in-depth knowledge of this area, people and difficulties than anyone else wanting to represent you as MP. These are challenging times for our country.

Our constituency is as divided over Brexit as the nation. Promises made for the 2016 referendum including VAT cuts, billions for our NHS, hundreds of new trade deals show no likelihood of materialising. The Lib Dems acknowledge the EU’s flaws, but believe our future is safer, more prosperous and more secure with Europe – against a risky alternative; reliance on American and Russian patronage.

Years of experience in public service and business taught me we achieve most when we focus on common ground.

I can, and will, work with you locally, and represent you nationally.

I look forward to another five years, devoting my time and energy to deliver what you deserve – a truly local MP.
