‘HONOURED’: Lib Dems choose South West Hertfordshire candidate 

 Published on: 1st October 2023   |   By: Dean Shaw   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Liberal Democrats have chosen their Parliamentary candidate for South West Hertfordshire at the next general election.

Councillor Sally Symington has been chosen to fight for the constituency, which has been re-drawn by the Boundary Commission for England to cover Kings Langley.

Cllr Symington is the trustee of a number of local charities, including the Chiltern Conservation Board, and has a passion for the environment.

Her selection comes hot on the heels of the Liberal Democrats’ success in the recent local elections, as they topped the poll in Three Rivers and took control of Dacorum Borough Council from the Conservatives.

The Liberal Democrats now have overall control of the two local council areas covered by the South West Hertfordshire constituency.

Cllr Symington said: “I am excited and honoured to be selected.

“On the doorstep, residents tell me how they’re struggling with the rising cost of living and trying to access GPs and dentists, and are frustrated about the impact of out-of-date housing targets on our precious green belt and local services.

“I’m known for being a visible community campaigner with a strong reputation for listening to residents and getting things done.

“I want to give our area the strong voice in Westminster that we deserve.”

Daisy Cooper, MP for St Albans and deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats, said: “Sally is a real champion for our NHS and social care services and I know that, if elected, she will take her fight to protect the local environment into the heart of Parliament.”

The date of the next general election has yet to be announced, but the latest it will be held is December 2024.
