Meet your Labour Candidate for Norton Fitzwarren & Staplegrove ward:
With national politics in turmoil, it’s never been more important to have strong, progressive local councils. Tories in Somerset and Taunton Deane have stood by as Government cuts have devastated the services on which we depend, like schools, libraries and children’s centres.
Labour councillors who are elected onto the new authority of Somerset West and Taunton have pledged to stand up to the Government and rebuild local services. Instead of slash and burn, we will consult local people and take a lead in establishing quality local services, like a decent bus service and facilities for young people in our town.
Labour values like co-operation and respect will inform all we do. There are many areas of public life, such as housing and the environment where we can make a real difference. I hope voters in Norton Fitzwarren and Staplegrove will elect a Labour councillor to play a part in this vital work
