key_election_thank_you.jpg

Following last weeks District Council elections in Huntingdonshire, residents now have 7 excellent Liberal Democrat councillors to represent them. The Liberal Democrats are the second largest party on the council and you can be sure that your Lib Dem Councillors will be very active holding the Conservative administration to account and doing everything in their power to ensure that the council is looking after the interests of residents.

We would like to thank all of our 29 candidates for standing in the various wards across Huntingdonshire. They fought excellent campaigns and did us and the voters proud, and through this campaign they have built a platform on which to win more council seats in the future! Well done all. 

Our Liberal Democrat candidates and councillors are hugely grateful to members and supporters in the District who help delivering Focus Newsletters, put up posters, and keep our Lib Dem team informed on developments and concerns of residents in wards all across Huntingdonshire, and all year round. A great big thank you to you all! Your continued support is invaluable.

Lastly, and most importantly, a huge THANK YOU to all the people who came out to vote Liberal Democrat in these elections. Your Liberal Democrat councillors, together with our members and supporters will be working hard for you all year round to ensure that all residents are well represented in council decisions.

THANK YOU!

One of the great things about Huntingdonshire Lib Dems is how well we work as a team. Peter Downes is the Lib Dem County Councillor for much of the area and works well with our current District Councillors, John and Patricia and the other candidates to tackle issues that arise for residents in a caring way, efficiently and effectively. In this way we can also ensure that issues that are handled by either District or County councils are properly picked up and dealt with.

Lib Dems are famous for connecting well with residents throughout the year. The attached Newsletter from Patricia and Johns' Brampton and Hinchingbrooke Park ward summarises feedback we have received from residents and how we have used these to shape our, and more importantly your, priorities for this election.

Liberal Democrats - working hard for you ALL year round

The Liberal Democrats in Huntingdonshire have a great team who work brilliantly to support residents!

key_Focus_banner.jpg

1. We keep residents informed about what is going on in a number of ways. Firstly there are our famous FOCUS Newsletters (see picture showing recent St Neots editions). Different versions are delivered across Huntingdonshire. In December, Peter Downes issued his 130th edition for Brampton. Secondly, we also maintain a website and a FaceBook page for those who want their info. electronically, and thirdly our councillors and supporters meet residents face-to-face regularly.

2. We actively seek opportunities to listen to residents concerns, including the regular surgeries that we hold across Huntingdonshire, attendance at parish council meetings, focused surveys / questionnaires for residents, and of course our face-to-face contact with people in the community.

3. We are committed to make things better for residents, if we possibly can. We campaign on a wide variety of things that matter to people (AND ARE OFTEN SUCCESSFUL IN HELPING DELIVER). These include parking problems, improving street lighting, challenging inappropriate development etc. Our councillors also manage a lot of case-work for individual residents, who need additional support to sort out issues. Because we work as a close team, we are able to bring a great deal of experience to address issues and escalate, if necessary.

Huntingdonshire Liberal Democrats are a great team, that works hard for you ALL year round!!!

We are pleased to introduce our 3 candidates for these wards.

key_northhunts_banner.jpg

Tony Hulme, our candidate for Somersham, was for many years a District Councillor. In this role, Tony has been instrumental in improving the welfare and safety of senior citizens, in measures affecting road safety and also in measures affecting recycling. Tony subscribes to the “liberal tradition” and to its reputation for listening to people and working for the electorate all year round, not just at election time. Tony would be a great representative for Somersham and bring great experience into the role.

Elke Smith is standing in Sawtry. Elke moved to Sawtry 2016, where she works as a Voice Coach/Singer and Advisor. She is passionate about community matters, especially the silver generation (support and help) and teenagers in the communty (integrated approaches for their development and support). Elke has a private pilot licence and in her spare time she enjoys a flight from Conington Airfield.

Dan Breen, who is our candidate in Ramsey has lived in Ramsey St Mary's for 5 years now with his partner and their 3 dogs and loves it there. He works as a software tester for an Anti-Fraud software provider in Cambridge, and has been a long term matchnight volunteer for the Peterborough Phantoms ice hockey team at both junior and senior levels.

As part of a committed and enthusiastic team your Liberal Democrat candidates will be great councillors for your wards.
