Marcia has lived in the Wellsprings & Rowbarton Ward for 42 years and has been a councillor for 26 years. She is married with two daughters and two granddaughters.
Marcia believes strongly in the rights of tenants and the importance of their participation in the decision making process. She wants more social housing to meet the needs of the people and to combat homelessness. She will continue to listen and respond to the needs and concerns of the local community.
As a proud Tauntonian of 70 years who has served as Mayor for the borough, she has a strong passion for the town and the Deane, which has never swayed. She is determined that our County Town be a great place to live and work and that our children and future generations to come will want to remain.
Sue Lees has been a Councillor for the past 12 years, representing the Fairwater Ward.
She brings a wealth of experience to her support for local residents and, along with fellow Councillor Marcia Hill, has worked with them to push for action to prevent illegal camping, which has impacted negatively on the community.
She believes strongly that the council needs to protect existing council houses and build significantly more to meet the housing needs of Taunton people.
Sue says: “I am a visually impaired person but this does not prevent me from playing my part in helping any constituent who needs help. I look forward to meeting many of you and continuing to listen and help.”
