CUTTING congestion, fighting for a Western Relief Road, improving active travel, boosting public health and tackling a climate emergency – those were the priorities Bromsgrove Liberal Democrats outlined as they unveiled their Worcestershire County Council election candidates.
Samuel Evans, a 22-year-old Masters of Laws student, will stand in Bromsgrove East.
He wants to represent the community he has lived in for his entire life and has campaigned to improve.
Last year he launched a petition to save the vital 202 bus service which was later restored and he has also helped residents fighting pavement parking and trying to get pot holes fixed.
NHS doctor Joanna McKenna, who lives in the town with her husband and children, will contest the Bromsgrove West seat.
She fights passionately about any proposed privatisation of the health service and launched a petition in a bid to get the Government to vaccinate teachers before schools reopened.
Dr David Nicholl, who will stand in Bromsgrove South, has lived in Hagley for more than 17 years with his wife and children.
He has worked on the NHS frontline during the pandemic and is a long-term campaigner of holding the Government to account.
He has called for those self-isolating to get more support and is fighting to rebuild Worcestershire’s health and social care services.
And Joshua Robinson, the Lib Dem candidate for Bromsgrove Central, has consistently campaigned to improve the town centre and district as a whole, along with his wife Siobhan who is a district councillor.
He works on the high street and lives in the town with his wife Siobhan who is also a district councillor and a teacher.
Mr Robinson, a keen cyclist, has been calling for better active travel and launched a petition to reduce speed limits on the A38, particularly around schools.
The Worcestershire County Council elections take place on May 6.
