Your Somerset Council councillors for Comeytrowe & Trull

Dawn Johnson

After a career in television in London, Dawn moved to Somerset 28 years ago. Since then, Dawn has raised 3 children alongside undertaking further training in counselling and working for mental health charities. Dawn is passionate about the value of community and currently supports you as your local Parish, District and Somerset County Councillor. She is excited about the opportunity to serve as a Unitary Councillor where her skills can be applied to contribute to further important decision making. This is a major transition for Somerset and requires experienced councillors with listening skills, team-building skills and the capacity to deal with a heavy work load.
