Former Lib Dem MP to challenge Somerset Tory Leader (and LEP fan) John Osman at county elections

Owl would like to know her views on our local LEP. Mr Osman’s Somerset County Council provides much administrative and political support to the LEP.

“Former Liberal Democrat Wells MP Tessa Munt is to stand against Somerset County Council leader John Osman in the forthcoming local elections in May.

The Lib Dems have released the full list of the candidates they will be fielding in a bid to win seats across the Wells constituency during the county council elections.

Ms Munt is the most eye-catching candidate. She was the Member of Parliament for Wells from 2010 – 2015 and had previously served as the Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, Vince Cable.”
