Julian represents the Eastover ward of Bridgwater.

Julian says “Over the last twelve years I have tried to provide a personal service to the local electors. It makes me very angry how the people of Eastover have been given the run around by the Tories in Sedgemoor and Taunton and the LibCons at Westminster. Services must be what people want, not what the Council thinks it will give. I am fed up with Sedgemoor always giving poor services. We face even more cuts, lower wages ,higher Inflation and less jobs. We should be investing for the future not cutting back. I did not vote for more supermarkets. I supported retaining the SPLASH. The Tories have let us down, we need a change. “
