I aim to bring the values of the party nationally to our locality and work with our team to bring about change and support our community.
As you can see from the a full list of Liberal Democrat Parliamentary candidate selections so far , it’s quite a diverse range of seats which have selected so far. Usually this early in a Parliament seat selections are for target seats only. This time, both weaker and stronger seats have been selecting early. That’s particularly welcome as in weaker seats the additional leadership and focus of activity which can flow from selecting a PPC is often a useful part of the local party’s development. The earlier that happens in a Parliament, the more time there is for that to bear fruit.
