Liberal Democrats announce selections in all Hove wards for May 2011

8 11 2010

The Council Candidates for the Local Elections in May 2011 have been announced today for all wards that fall within the Hove Parliamentary constituency.

Local party Chairman Lawrence Eke said, “Following our 11% swing in the General Election, I am delighted with the people who have come forward to fight for better representation and Liberal Democrat values on the Council. Voters are fed up with complacent councillors who do practically nothing for the people they represent. Up and down the UK, Liberal Democrat councillors are known to work harder than any other party. We have some committed campaigners in our ranks, such as Mark CollinsBecky Taylor for Central Hove and Paul ElgoodBrian Stone for Brunswick & Adelaide.

I hope to announce the selections for the Brighton Pavilion & Brighton Kemptown wards before Christmas.”

Becky Taylor, candidate for Central Hove, said, “Mark Collins and I have already met many people in the ward. One message we are hearing on the doorstep is that in the last 4 years nothing has changed in the constituency, and the problems that people face have been ignored. Mark & I are determined to address the issues raised, we will work tirelessly to get things done.”

I feel that perhaps before I start on my tirades on various issues I should set the scene as it were, the background to my political views and situation. I believe my political interest begun in joining LGBT forums online when I was young and getting involved in issues of and campaigns on equality that way.  I became fully politically interested at college when I chose, perhaps slightly on a whim, to study Politics and Sociology among my A levels … Read More
