For many years Colchester constituency was held for the Liberal Democrats by Bob Russell. Now the party has selected a new Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC) for the seat:

Colchester Liberal Democrats select Martin Goss

On being selected Martin Goss said:

I will work tirelessly as always for the people of Colchester to ensure fairness in everything we do.

Colchester is in my DNA. I’ve been raised here. I’ve been educated here, worked here and most importantly, I live here.

I am proud to have been selected to represent our town in the next general election.

The local newspaper adds:

Mr Goss, of Axial Drive, Colchester, was first elected to the council in 2008 and serves the Mile End ward.

He was pitted against five other candidates coming out on top against former councillor Jo Hayes, Callum Robertson, Peter Gwizdala, James Sandbach and James Willis.

David King, party chairman elect, said: “The candidates were impressive. There was an excellent atmosphere and buzz of conversation.

“The winner Martin Goss has a deservedly fantastic ‘can do and will do’ reputation.

“He’s a local boy, a proven campaigner, councillor, cabinet member and activist with a strong local following across the political divide.

“We are proud to have him.”
