Liberal Democrat members in Truro and Falmouth have selected Ruth Gripper as their new Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC).
She posted on Facebook:
Thrilled to announce that today I was selected as the Liberal Democrat prospective parliamentary candidate for Truro and Falmouth. This seat has a proud Liberal history and I’m honoured to be representing our party in the place where I grew up.
Lots of work to do but I’m very much looking forward to taking the Liberal Democrat message to local people, and joining a fantastic team of candidates, councillors and activists working hard for Cornwall.
Conservative-held since its creation in 2010, the constituency does, however, have a Liberal Democrat history. It took in parts of the former Truro and St Austell seat and the Falmouth and Camborne seat. The former had a Liberal Democrat MP in Matthew Taylor and the latter in Julia Goldsworthy.
