During his tenure, the once vibrant market town has been branded a slum, with many residents citing Fysh as one of the main causes saying he has no real interest in the region.
In a recent poll Lib Dem gained 54% as Adam Dance decided to challenge Fysh for position.
Dance is well known in the local region for being a caring young man focused on his home region. The son of a farmer is up for the challenge of restoring Yeovil and the surrounding areas to its former glory.
Dance has publicly stated he feels it is a two-horse race at the election between himself and the unpopular current MP.
Although many residents in the town feel he could be thrown from the saddle by standing for the Liberal Democratic party. The Lib Dem council verges on bankruptcy with many blaming the council for the town’s demise.
Meanwhile, it does look like a two horse race as predicted by Dance, but with a popular and well backed thourghbred steaming up on the rails, Serena Wooton who in the same poll gathered a respectable 33%. with many predicting it to go neck and neck to the finishing post.
Wooton, appears to be in full stride as she is out and about meeting residents in the constituency, as well as holding numerous surgeries listening to residents issues as a Green Party representive. Although the party has little form when it comes to General Election, only winning one seat at the 2019 election race.
However, when you talk to residents, Wooton seems determined to gain the seat, with many backing the favoured candidate.
‘ She’s talking a great amount of sense and really cares about our region, something we haven’t seen here for many years, its something the town really needs, a total change of direction, The Tory has been a disaster, the Lib Dems have totally failed at Council level, – I hope she is sucessful, this town needs real change’ said one of her supporters.
Slippery Fish’, a total outsider, gained just 2% less than the current MP.
