The local paper reports:
The Liberal Democrats have selected Beki Sellick as their Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Peterborough. The engineer fought the seat in the 2017 election, finishing third with 1,597 votes.
She said: “I’m an ordinary person who’s had a variety of jobs – nationalised and privatised, shop floor and management, full-time and part-time, redundant. And then I started my own business in Peterborough two years ago.“I’ve lived in central Peterborough for 10 years. I work from home. My family and I use our public health and education services where I’ve contributed as a school governor and on our local NHS patient participation group.
“I chair our residents association where we run a monthly community café.”
Do go and help her campaign if you can. Parliamentary by-elections are a vital source of national exposure and political momentum for the Liberal Democrats.
UPDATE: She is now the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary by-election candidate.
