There is less than a year until the next local election here in BCP.
In 2019 the Liberal Democrats came second in both votes and seats, for a year and a half we were able to run the council as part of an alliance with other smaller groups, delivering results for residents through hard work, collaboration, and consensus. We passed BCP’s first ever budget, declared a climate emergency and stood up for the identity of each of our three towns.
Our campaign for the 2023 election is already underway, our goal is to oust this new Conservative administration and ALL four of our local Constituency parties are united in this.
If, like me, you are disgusted by the arrogant Conservative party’s behaviour, locally and nationally, I would urge you to think about being a Liberal Democrat candidate in May 2023.
If you think you may be interested, we are running another “Be A Councillor” session on Wednesday 15th June and I would wholeheartedly encourage you to come along. You can meet the team, learn more about the campaign and what to expect when you win!
