Lib Dems select candidate to fight in Wealden

Wealden Liberal Democrats have selected Giles Goodall as their prospective parliamentary candidate to fight the General Election on 7th May.

Gile_Goodall_LibDemGiles, who was born and bred in Sussex, aims to bring his experience as an international civil servant to benefit Wealden if elected as local MP.

He replaces Chris Bowers, who stood for the Lib Dems in 2010.  Chris was selected this time to fight Green MP Caroline Lucas for the Brighton Pavillion seat.

Mr Goodall’s priorities are more affordable housing for local people, a better public transport network in the constituency, and protecting our green spaces.

With 15 years experience of working with the European Union, Giles wants to mobilise European funding and trading opportunities for local people and businesses:

Wealden needs a strong and experienced voice in Parliament who’ll stand up for local peoples’ interests at Westminster.

Only Liberal Democrats will stand up for the moderate majority, building a stronger economy and a fairer society, where everyone has the chance to get on in life.

I look forward to working with the local Lib Dem team to represent Wealden voters.

Giles Goodall grew up in Steyning, West Sussex, attending the local secondary school.  He graduated from Royal Holloway, University of London, before winning a scholarship from the British government to attend the College of Europe in Bruges.
