As the Leighton Buzzard Observer reports:
The Liberal Democrats have unveiled councillor Emma Holland-Lindsay as their candidate for the upcoming Mid-Bedfordshire by-election.
Emma grew up in Bedfordshire and lives locally, and is currently councillor on Central Bedfordshire Council representing Leighton Buzzard.
Emma is a member of the senior leadership team at a nationwide women’s charity and has previously worked for national disability charities.
Her by-election campaign will focus on local health services starved of Government funding. People are unable to see a GP after a surge in housebuilding and no new investment in health services.
Emma isn’t just a councillor. She’s a councillor who took her seat with a stonking swing from the Conservatives this May. She got got the highest vote of any candidate from any party in Central Bedfordshire. (A well-chosen location for one of my canvassing trips in April!).
A happy omen perhaps…
