Local Lib Dem to stand in N. Shrops by-election
The Liberal Democrats have selected Helen Morgan as their candidate for next month's North Shropshire by-election. Recently North Shropshire ha seen the closure of both of its ambulance stations, GP services were in crisis and A&E wait times were on the rise.
Mrs Morgan said she was also passionate about getting a fair deal for Shropshire's farmers at risk as the Conservatives continue to let them down with disappointing trade deals.
"Residents have a chance to send a strong message to the Conservatives who've taken people around here for granted for decade.
Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey MP said: "Helen is a fantastic campaigner with a track record of standing up for local communities across North Shropshire. She would be an outstanding local MP and she's the only candidate who can beat the Conservatives.
"For too long the Conservatives have taken North Shropshire for granted, often ignoring the views of local people. It is a simple choice at this election. Residents can elect Helen, a hardworking local Liberal Democrat and an outstanding campaigner, or an unknown Conservative lawyer from Birmingham who'll continue the neglect local health services have seen."
