Greater Reading Liberal Democrats are delighted to confirm their candidates for the General Election on June 8th are Cllr Meri O’Connell for Reading West and Dr Jenny Woods for Reading East.
Chair of the Local Party, James Moore states, “In an election like no other this country has seen, we are proud to have two such great campaigners for the open-hearted, outward-looking values we know are shared by people all across Reading, Woodley, Whitegates and West Berkshire.”
The Liberal Democrats are going into this election as the real opposition to the Conservative Brexit Government and the only party fighting for a Britain that is open, tolerant and united.
Jenny says, “I want to beat Brexit! It’s already damaging us here in Reading East. Businesses are suffering from the economic uncertainty and we are seeing the heartbreaking human cost in our local communities. This election is a chance for the country to change for the better.”
Meri says, “This crushing Tory government must be challenged. Their policies are destroying our local schools, hospitals and council services. In my work as a Councillor, I continually hear stories of the hurt to local people’s lives. It’s a fight I am up for!”
For all those who want to protect our local economy by staying in the Single Market and ensure the people have the final say over what comes next, this is your chance to make a difference by voting Liberal Democrat in the general election.
