AID worker Dr Brian Mathew has been chosen by the Liberal Democrats to fight for the North Wiltshire constituency in next year’s general election.
Dr Mathew, who stood for North Somerset at the last election, has worked with WaterAid and the Department for International Development.
He beat Wiltshire Councillor for Malmesbury, Simon Killane to become the North Wiltshire branch prospective parliamentary candidate.
Constituency Chairman Marc Brown said "This was a closely fought contest with a very high turnout and two very able candidates. The constituency looks forward to a great campaign culminating in a successful result at the next General Election.”
Dr Mathew said his campaign would be starting immediately. “We will be on your doorsteps seeking your opinions on how to make the constituency a better place.
“Issues already on the books include consulting the people of Calne over the Hills recycling plant, possibly re-locating it to Junction 17 where transport links via the M4 make it a no brainer, compared with mega trucks driving through a number of County towns terrorising pedestrians, and other motorists and fouling the air”.
He also paid tribute to Cllr Killane: “Simon is a great bloke doing a fantastic job on the council, defending the town from inappropriate development and at the same time a tireless community campaigner who has brought play parks and driven community involvement in local planning decisions including the new Waitrose supermarket, whilst protecting the town centre.”
