Local businesswoman Deborah Brewer has been selected to fight the former Liberal Democrat seat of Torbay:
Mrs Brewer boasts a business background having worked in management for BT.
She set up a business consultancy with her husband Dennis and currently teaches business management at Exeter College. She lives with her family in the Meadfoot area of Torquay…
Mrs Brewer said, “I’m not a career politician. Torbay is where I live and have brought up my family. I work and play with many lovely people in the church and local community. Torbay is the only place I would ever consider standing.”
Adrian Sanders, who was the Lib Dem for the seat until 2015, had previously announced that he was not going to stand again, although since the election he has returned to the council with a thumping by-election win.
