|Reg Winslow in Sydenham Fairfax|
In Fairfax it's a straight Labour-Tory battle. Former Sedgemoor Enivironmental officer Reg Winslow is out on the doorsteps working hard to get the message across that people mustn't be tempted to waste their votes on the lone 'paper' libdem candidate as every vote counts in the struggle to oust the 3 Bower Tories and make Bridgwater a Tory-Free Zone. Reg is well known as a hard working and community sprited individual who is determined to put his years of Local Goverment experience at the service of the people he hopes to represent. "The message on the doorstep has been really positive " said Reg "Clearly people are angry about the loss of the Splash but also what the Tories are doing Nationally. This wasn't what people voted for. And people are so dissilusioned with the LibDems that this time they're voting Labour to send the 3 key messages - we don;t like what the Tories are doing, we don't trust the libdems and we're better off with Labour."
It's time for a change

Jenny Baines has lived in Middlezoy for 14 years and has been closely involved with various village organisations including the playgroup, the Middlezoy Community Project and the PTFA. Most recently Jenny was governor at Middlezoy Primary School, acting as the Chair of Governors until April 2009. During this time she was closely involved in the federation of Middlezoy and Othery Schools which has successfully built closer links between the two villages. Jenny , the workplace rep for the Association of Teachers and Lecturers says “I am standing for the Kings Isle because I value deeply the vibrant and active community in this part of Sedgemoor. I am proud to live in an area full of active volunteers but am deeply concerned that the proposed cuts in rural transport and support to villages and communities will mean less support for the residents of Kings Isle."
The worse case of LibDem delusion is Highbridge where their embattled leader Joe Leach is fighting for his political life. Highbridge has long been Sedgemoors most marginal seat swinging between Labour, Tory and Lib Dem sometimes with single figure votes in it.
