A statement from Alex Shingler – Lib Dem candidate for Mendip District Council’s Frome College ward byelection on May 4th:
Born and bred in Frome, I am passionate about the town and everyone being given a voice, particularly young people who are frequently overlooked by decision makers. Having served as Deputy Youth Mayor for two years I have had experience sitting at the council table and directly challenging councillors. Shortly after this, I stood as a candidate for both town and district council in College ward. Outside of politics, I am a trustee of Young People Frome and work as an estate agent.
The key issues that I am campaigning on are; ensuring that young people do have a voice at Mendip; that fly-tipping is dealt with; the Old Showfield continues to have investment put into it, whilst ensuring that the relationship between the town and district council is significantly strengthened by increasing participation within the community.
