GENERAL ELECTION JUNE 8 2017
Leading local campaigner, Jonathan Brown, is the Chichester Liberal Democrats candidate at June General Election
Jonathan Brown, is confirmed as the Liberal Democrats candidate for the snap General Election. Jonathan grew up and lives in the Constituency.
Jonathan's a rising star within the party. He won a stunning District Council by-election victory in December. He's a respected Councillor with a strong record of working with the local community. During this election he'll be campaigning on matters important to local people.
Jonathan said: "I am really proud to have been chosen to represent the Liberal Democrats. The opportunity to serve the people is a real honour. The Conservatives take victory and power for granted, but I am determined that they can be complacent no longer.”
Jonathan has already been out campaigning and talking to residents throughout the constituency. He's also supporting candidates in the local elections.
Jonathan said: “This election is much bigger than Brexit. When we meet people they tell us they are fed up with the current Conservative government brutally slashing key local services such as the NHS and Social Care, schools and infrastructure.
Of course, Theresa May’s plunge into a Hard Brexit black hole is going to make the pressures even more severe.”
The Chichester Liberal Democrats have doubled in size over the last year. New members are attracted by the party’s local campaigning and their commitment to fairness, democracy and common sense.
And because, as Jonathan says: “It's up to the Liberal Democrats to oppose this Hard Brexit Government. If you want to change the direction of the country, please support me on June 8th.”
Our vision and plans for chichester and britain
While we respect the outcome of the referendum held in June 2016, we believe that Britain is a more prosperous country when we are part of the world’s largest economy. We are fighting for Britain at the very minimum to remain a member of the Single Market.
Liberal Democrats are a pro free-trade, pro business party.
That means building a sustainable economy, fit for the future, alongside a thriving business community. We want an economy built on ensuring regional growth and embracing new technology.
The Liberal Democrats will fight to protect our health and care system, and to ensure it can carry on delivering for future generations.
But to do that, we know we must recognise and address the funding and capacity challenges these services face.
The Liberal Democrats believe that everyone needs a decent home at a cost they can afford.
We are committed to building more houses. To make these houses ‘homes’ we will also invest in sustainable infrastructure alongside them.
Education is at the heart of our policy. It is the key to freedom and opportunity, and a vital part of creating the fairer society our Party seeks to build.
We believe in a society where every young person can grow up to achieve anything they set their mind to.
TAX & BENEFITS
Liberal Democrats believe in a fair taxation system and a strong social safety net.
We are the Party that created the Welfare State. The Liberal Democrats remain committed to creating a society where no one is enslaved by poverty and everyone has a chance to succeed.
