Claire Sully - MP Candidate for the new Bridgwater Constituency

Support me, join the Lib Dems today.

Growing up in areas in Somerset that have seen deprivation and transformation, has shaped my determination to improve lives through my professional, political and community work.

The new Bridgwater constituency is one of the most exciting places in the county, if not the country, right now.

Where else can you find a constituency that possesses award-winning beaches, a stunning area of outstanding natural beauty, has historic towns and villages, vibrant arts and culture, and is set to be a world leader in future energy solutions?

It just needs a member of parliament with the drive and ability to help unlock this area’s potential, to ensure local communities benefit.  This is what I will do, as your MP.

Since becoming the MP candidate I’ve met with Lizzie and Phil and I am helping them set up Burnham Coastwatch to improve beach safety.

I've helped to set up an action group with the lovely people of Pawlett Hams, so their voices could be better heard by EDF over a proposed saltmarsh in an area local people don't want to lose.

I enjoyed supporting Sam starting up her North Petherton Makers and Produce market; helped Amy get out the important message about road safety following the tragic death of her young daughter.

I spent eight hours with the police in a ride-along; been litter picking on Berrow beach.

I've done lots of Burnham and Highbridge parkruns and I was proud to be a guest judge at last year’s Bridgwater Carnival.

I can win the new Bridgwater constituency seat in the next election against an incompetent and uncaring Conservative Party, and a Labour Party that is indecisive and failing to inspire. Labour do not consider Bridgwater a target seat and encourage volunteers to help other candidates, hundreds of miles away.

Somerset Councillor

As a Unitary Councillor I have a track record of bringing people together, campaigning, and working hard for my residents.

Elected to Somerset Council, replacing two Conservative councillors, who had a combined 50 + years experience, I topped the vote.

I stepped up from being a community champion, parish councillor to unitary authority councillor because of a concern I had around mental health in our communities.

I am Deputy Chair of Somerset Lib Dem Group at Somerset Council. This is the largest Lib Dem Group in the country.  I am also a member of the Adults and Health Scrutiny Committee.

I have a reputation for taking on complex and difficult casework and not giving up until I have got the right result for my residents. I have delivered on road safety improvements on busy A371. I was told this would never be done.

I have campaigned on behalf of a family in hardship, who because of an uncaring Conservative government have found themselves in a poverty trap.

I brought this case work to national media attention (newspapers, radio and BBC), this case was discussed in the Home Office, and I set up fundraising campaign for this family, which has proved essential to their day-to-day living.  My residents won their fight with the government.

I have written a Gender Pay Gap paper, delivered to the equality panel at Somerset Council.
