Matt Walker selected for Selby and Ainsty by-election

The Stray Ferret reports:

The Liberal Democrats have selected NHS worker Matt Walker as their candidate for the forthcoming Selby and Ainsty by-election.

Mr Walker was brought up in Knaresborough, just outside the Selby and Ainsty constituency boundary, and currently represents the Knaresborough West division on North Yorkshire Council…

He said:

“As a candidate I will be a passionate campaigner for the area, listening to residents’ views and championing their issues.

“Residents across Selby and Ainsty have been let down, our NHS is on its knees. In my professional life I am a manager in the NHS, and in one of my previous roles I spent time managing the GP out-of-hours and minor injuries unit at Selby Memorial Hospital. I’ve seen first hand just how amazing our NHS is and just how much damage the Conservatives have done to it.”

Matt Walker joins Emma Holland-Lindsay, Blaise Baquiche and Sarah Dyke in the quartet of by-election candidates.
