The Macclesfield Lib Dem committee are delighted to announce the selection of our Parliamentary Candidate, Richard Flowers.
Macclesfield Liberal Democrats have unanimously selected campaigner Richard Flowers as Parliamentary Candidate. Richard grew up in Cheshire and works as a Chartered Accountant. An experienced campaigner and award-winning Lib Dem writer, Richard was inspired to step up and do more by the EU Referendum. Richard and the Liberal Democrats are ready to take the fight to the Conservatives.
At a meeting on Saturday, Richard said: “This is the fight of our life. We can be an outward-looking Great Britain that welcomes new ideas, trade and people or a Tory little England that pulls out of the single market, pulls up the drawbridge, and pulls down the curtain on our place in the world. It's a real honour to be asked to lead that fight here in Macclesfield."
Local party leader Andrew Haldane said: "We had a very constructive meeting with Richard, a Stockport Grammar old boy, and he impressed us with his involvement in the North West and his clear grasp of our Liberal Democrat principles. We are looking forward to an enjoyable working partnership with him as we go forward to the General Election on June 8th."
