 Mike Rigby

Mike has served as the County Councillor for the Lydeard division, covering much of the new South Quantock ward, for six years, serving as a doughty defender of his communities against the worst of austerity. 

Attracted to the Liberal Democrats policy platform, especially the plans to regenerate Taunton, Mike has joined them in trying to elect a new administration for a new council, an administration with the ambition, energy, policy and plans to put the shine back on the county town. 

Committed to fighting for fair funding for our councils, schools and local services, Mike will continue to be a strong voice for the community against the wall of Conservative apathy about Somerset.

A qualified town planner, Mike intends to lead reform of the council's planning function, which has failed the people for many years.
