Congratulations to George Butcher, selected by Liberal Democrats in Stroud as the party’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC).
As he describes himself on his website:
I am one of two Liberal Democrat councillors for Wotton-under-Edge, North Nibley and Stinchcombe, proud to be continuing 30 years of hard work.
I currently sit on Stroud District Council’s Community Services and Licensing and constitution committees.
It’s easy to say I am happy to be part of the #LibDemfightback.
Good to see that, like Vince Cable, George Butcher is a keen believer in the importance of further education (FE):
I don’t usually mention town/parish council elections, but it is worth mentioning that in September the Lib Dems won a town council by-election in Stroud, making Steve Dechan the first Lib Dem to be elected in the town for twenty-four years.
