General Election, South Northamptonshire, December 12, 2019 – Liberal Democrat Candidate Statement

I am Chris Lofts. I have a background in public service, having been deputy chief executive at South Northamptonshire Council. I have been been an elected councillor on both South Northamptonshire Council and Northamptonshire County Council and currently lead the Liberal Democrat Group at South Northamptonshire. 

I am again standing for the Liberal Democrats in South Northamptonshire. As a Liberal Democrat, I am committed to keeping the UK in the European Union to avoid the disastrous economic, social and employment impact that Brexit would bring. 

I have over 20 years' experience supporting South Northamptonshire communities. I have championed local services and chair a local mental health charity. I have campaigned against the over-development of the area and have opposed major schemes that deliver few benefits for existing communities. I have fought against cuts to local services and have campaigned against many disastrous proposals by Conservative councillors. Protecting existing communities and the local environment are my key priorities.

As your MP I will:

  • Support the new nnitary Councils in Northamptonshire and fight for them to receive increased Government funding. The failures of Tory run Northamptonshire County Council cannot be allowed to continue.
  • Fight for increased funding for our local schools. As a school governor I know first-hand how Tory cuts have impacted locally.
  • Press the government to take action to reduce pollution levels across the area. Vehicle pollution levels are above legal limits in Towcester. Only action by government will solve this.
  • Campaign to minimise the local impact of the disastrous decision to approve the massive rail/freight depot at Junction 15 of the M1.

A vote for me is a vote for a brighter future.

Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for South Northamptonshire
