This is my final District Council report as your Councillor representing the Curry Rivel and Drayton ward in this election period so I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for voting for me back in 2015 and the encouragement that has been given to me throughout the four years. It has been both enjoyable and a privilege and I trust I have represented this ward in a manner that has been supportive to you and our community.
The next District Council elections will be held on Thursday 2nd May where you will be voting for two councillors to represent the needs of our community as the Curry Rivel ward will merge with Langport and Huish ward as part of the national boundary changes imposed earlier in the year.
As such, with the election not far away restrictions are now imposed in the pre-election period known as 'purdah' which starts on 18th March and effectively means that all proactive publicity involving any candidates, myself included, who are standing for election must cease from this date until Election Day, hence my final report.
My thanks once again.
With very best wishes
District Councillor SSDC
