Curry Rivel & Langport

Richard Wilkins and Mike Stanton

Richard Wilkins and Mike Stanton are standing to be the Somerset Councillors for Curry Rivel and Langport. Both are committed local campaigners and work hard to help people in our area.

Mike Stanton has been a District Councillor since 2019. During the pandemic he has been a 'Vaccination Buddy' working to reassure people hesitant about the vaccine. Mike worked hard to reduce phosphate pollution & flooding, and to improve planning. He is passionate about improving rural transport, flood prevention, housing, and social care.

Richard has lived in Curry Rivel for over 10 years with his partner Kate. He grew up on a small farm on the Somerset Levels and is now a qualified lorry driver working full time in house removals. Richard sits on Curry Rivel Parish Council and is passionate about improving rural transport, helping local businesses, and protecting our environment.

Richard and Mike have both worked hard to protect local services and help residents with their issues and ideas. They are campaigning to reduce speed limits and add traffic calming onto busy residential roads. They are also campaigning against the Conservatives selling off County Farms. Richard, Mike and the Liberal Democrat team are your best bet to avoid another Conservative run council.

The Lib Dem plan for our area

Protect local services

In the face of irresponsible Conservative Government and County Council cuts to our funding, Liberal Democrat run District Councils have prevented cuts to our vital local services.

Improve our environment

The Liberal Democrats are actively improving our environment. We are investing in local parks, planting trees, and promoting renewable energy across Somerset.

Invest in our communities

Liberal Democrat run District Councils are investing millions in Town Centres across Somerset. We have also invested in local community centres, theatres and are working to improve our parks and green spaces.
