Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Newbury Lee Dillon has welcomed Stuart Gourley's selection as the Lib Dem candidate for the upcoming Clay Hill By-Election.
Lee Dillon said:
"I'm delighted that Stuart has been selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the upcoming by-election in Clay Hill. Having known Stuart for a while now I have no doubt that he is exactly the sort of person who will give all he's got for the residents of the area. The former Conservative councillor who was disqualified for lack of attendance let people down, but I know Stuart will put others before himself.
His experience as a Parish Councillor will mean that if elected he'll be able to hit the ground running, and he already has a number of notable achievements under his belt on behalf of the residents of Newbury.
Stuart is passionate about the community and building on the more caring society we have seen grow out of this pandemic. The past year has been a warning to us all that we must take global threats seriously, and I know that helping combat the worsening climate emergency will be at the top of Stuart's agenda. The Lib Dem run Town Council has a strong record on these issues and Stuart will make a great addition to that team.
I look forward to joining Stuart on the campaign trail in Clay Hill just as soon as lockdown rules allow. If you'd like to find out more about Stuart and the by-election then visit www.wbld.org.uk/ClayHillByElection"
