Sue Levinge.

Sue Levinge - Treasurer

Sue is now in her 8th year of being a treasurer at Taunton and Wellington Liberal Democrats and has been a part of the campaign team through many elections.

Sue views her job as making sure there is enough in the bank to see the campaign through. We are fortunate to have some brilliant fundraisers on the team to keep the money coming in. But we can never have enough to do all that we would like. As a team we work together to make sure leaflets go out on schedule within budget and present our policies and candidate as they deserve. We are incredibly grateful to our generous donors who enable us to do this.
