A welcome move from zero to three Lib Dem candidates

Three principal authority council by-elections this week, with not only three Lib Dem candidates but that’s also three up on the last time these seats were up. A very welcome step forward in the party’s journey to standing more often in council elections.

Thank you to Kyle Marsh for standing.

Thank you to Jane Hatzimasouras for being the Liberal Democrat candidate.

Thank you to Amanda Capell for completing the full set of Lib Dem candidates this week.
