Taunton Chamber Christmas Networking Lunch
Joining us, Guest Speaker: Rebecca Pow On 7th May 2015, I was successfully elected as the Member of Parliament for Taunton Deane with a 15.5k majority and since then have been working tirelessly to improve and enhance the constituency of Taunton Deane. Following a snap general election, I was then re-elected on 8th June with an increased majority of 15,887, and received 33,333 votes. The constituency has been my home for 27 years with my husband and family. I come from a long line of farmers, all from Somerset. It’s a wonderful area and I don’t plan on going anywhere else! It’s a wonderful area to live, work and bring up a family. I’ve always been involved in local activities which I much enjoy, from being a School Governor for 10 years, and a busy Parish Councillor in Stoke St Mary where I’ve also taken part in many fund raising community projects. A scientist by training, a former BBC,ITV and C4 reporter, specialising in the environment, farming and gardening I have also worked for the National Farmers Union, standing up for the agricultural community in dealings with Brussels.
