Statement to voters
I served our area as your MP from 2010 to 2015.
I'm proud of my record and I'm standing again for the General Election on June the 8th.
With the Conservatives on course for a huge win nationally, it is vital that we have strong, opposition in Westminster and a strong, experienced and independent MP standing up for Somerset.
It was a real privilege and an honour to serve as MP for our part of Somerset and I'm ready to continue.
