Terry Ledlie is to be the Labour PPC for Yeovil at the next General election. Terry grew up in the Isle of Man. He previously served in the Royal Navy spending a short time at HMS Heron at Yeovilton and served on HMS Edinburgh spending time on deployment in the Falkland Islands in 1999. He is married with two children who attend local schools in Yeovil. His wife Natalie is a Nurse who has just been made redundant from St.Margaret’s Hospice. On returning to Yeovil in 2005 Terry joined Royal Mail as a Postman and shortly after became a union representative for the Communication Workers Union. Over the last five years, Terry has become an area Delivery rep and covers the BA postcode area representing 600 members.
Terry joined the Labour Party in 2010 and is the current Chairman. He is also a Town councillor for Abbey Manor South, this being his second term on the council previously representing Yeovil South.
Terry believes that Labour can win in Yeovil and it’s the local Liberal Democrats that will struggle this time around. Terry said “Over the last three General elections in Yeovil the Labour vote has increased by 4,451 votes whilst the Liberal Democrat vote has gone into decline losing 14,197 votes, so Labour has a real chance in Yeovil”.
