We are putting up an experienced campaigner to contest the Rayleigh and Wickford constituency
Ron Tindall has spent many years as a local and county councillor, is a former trade union organiser, and is an ardent campaigner against domestic abuse. Not content with all that, Ron at 60 dedicated six years to earning a BA in history with first class honours from the Open University. He is therefore very concerned about school budget cuts.
Ron said this week: “I look forward to fighting for the Liberal Democrats in the Rayleigh and Wickford seat. I accept the result of the Brexit vote and am right behind our leader Tim Farron in his call for a second referendum on the terms of Brexit. The vote called for us to leave the EU but nobody voted for the Conservatives/UKIP hard Brexit which will leave our children and grandchildren an unholy mess to survive”.
“This Tory government has done – and continues to do – untold damage to this country with their hard, right-wing policies. They must be challenged and challenged again to restore a caring and decent society that works for everyone – not just newspaper magnates and billionaires”.
“That being said, I am also aware that local issues are just as important. I’m very concerned by the proposed changes to the A&E departments at Southend, Basildon and Chelmsford hospitals while we need to upgrade the area’s over-congested road network. Health, education housing and social care are also very high on my agenda.”
