Lib Dems name their General Election candidate

THE Liberal Democrats in Weaver Vale have named their Parliamentary candidate for the next General Election – whenever it is held.
They are also claiming a big increase in membership in Frodsham – where they admit they have not been very active for some years.
Daniela Parker, who lives with her husband and daughter at Northwich, has been chosen as prospective Parliamentary candidate
Former candidate Paul Roberts who is standing at Farndon in the Cheshire West and Chester Council elections in May said: “I am delighted that Daniela – who lives in the constituency – has been appointed as the Weaver Vale PPC. I’m sure she will make a real impact and get a much improved Lib Dem result at the next General Election, whenever it happens”.
Mrs Parker said: “I am thrilled to have been selected as the PPC for Weaver Vale. I am committed to working with all the members of the local community and demonstrating that our party’s policies can deliver a real improvement in people’s lives. Whether that is campaigning against fracking in our constituency to a fair funding model for our NHS I believe we offer a much-needed alternative to Labour and the Tories who are being dictated to by the extremists in their parties.
“I am delighted to already have been able to start putting together my campaign team, and in the New Year we will start planning our campaign strategy with my goal to become the Liberal Democrat MP for Weaver Vale”.
Mrs Parker works in the charitable sector with victims and witnesses of crime. She read Psychology at the University of Wales and went on to work for 12 years with substance misusing offenders in custody and supporting them in their recovery.
She is active in her local community and has worked with her neighbours to improve the appearance of their urban village and campaign for safer roads as well as objecting to more housing developments in the area.
Mrs Parker is passionate about a number of issues including healthcare and in particular improving the provision of mental health services, as well as the criminal justice system, including both the rehabilitation of offenders and the experience of victims and witnesses. As the daughter of an Italian father and a British mother she classes herself as pro European, and has been campaigning for an “Exit-from-Brexit”.
Liberal Democrat spokesman Richard Dawson said: “We have a growing membership and supporter base in Frodsham, especially since the Referendum.
“Frodsham is a growing and vibrant part of the constituency and we will be holding some Saturday events soon.”
