boss set to fight council elections in Brent Knoll
Knoll Liberal Democrats have this week selected their candidates
to take part in his May's District Council elections.
Bill Hancock, 67, is a well known face locally who runs the
Oak Tree Speedway Arena outside Highbridge.
Using his experience, Bill says he is keen to support local
tourism and small businesses in our area to grow, including farmers
who are facing difficult times with the sell-off of county farms.
"I will work to make sure peoples voices are heard
whatever their political colour, and community work is at the
heart of what I do," he said.
Also selected is Fiona Cawley, 48, who lives in Highbridge with
her husband and son, and moved here from London six years ago.
She is very community active and has extensive knowledge in the
catering industry with expertise in food safety and particularly
in budget control, which she believes is "very much needed"
at Sedgemoor District Council! Fiona formed and chaired an action
group in 2009 which achieved its goals.
Sedgemoor Liberal Democrat Leader Joe Leach told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"I am very pleased that Bill and Fiona are standing for Knoll.
Both are local people and both will work hard if elected. I look
forward to working with them on Sedgemoor in May."
