Introducing Megan Boucher

Megan launches her campaign in East Fairfax

Megan Boucher is the Labour candidate for the Bridgwater Town Council by-election in Fairfax East scheduled for Monday 18th December. “Bridgwater is changing and growing very quickly, with new job opportunities and a massive expansion in housebuilding. I want to do my part in ensuring that local people have access to these opportunities but not at the expense of overdevelopment or without the proper community infrastructure put in place first!”.

Megan Boucher was born and raised in Bridgwater. She went to Haygrove School and after studying youth and community work in London, returned to Bridgwater where she worked for a local church for ten years.
She is currently a student wellbeing officer at Bridgwater College, and in her spare time organises activities for socially isolated people. As a mother herself – to Alice, aged three – Megan understands the challenges faced by working parents. “That’s why I’m standing for Labour,” she says. “Ours is a party that puts fair pay, affordable housing and accessible healthcare for all at the centre of everything it does. A thriving economy is one that benefits everyone, not just a select few.”

Megan Boucher- Labour candidate for Fairfax East

Fairfax East faces a number of challenges in the coming years, and if elected, Megan says her particular concerns will include:

* Reducing anti-social behaviour,

* Improving road safety 

* Ensuring that any expansion in housing is sustainable.

“It must include the community facilities that are needed”
Megan is also passionate about wanting to build a safer, better future for our children, supporting renewable energy, reducing carbon emissions, and protecting the natural world around us. “Bridgwater is a town which has always taken pride in its community spirit. My vision for Bridgwater and for Fairfax East is for a thriving community where no-one is left behind.”
