South Shropshire Liberal Democrats have selected Chris Naylor from Church Stretton as their candidate for the forthcoming General Election.

Chris said:

“I’m delighted and honoured to be selected as South Shropshire’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the Lib Dems here. I promise to do all I can for local residents.

I want to build on the success of our previous Lib Dem MP here, Matthew Green – and win back this seat to give our residents, our rural issues, a stronger voice in Westminster.

“South Shropshire and our particular problems are sadly being taken for granted by this exhausted, infighting government. I want to champion our local needs – and especially our rural communities, our farms, our rivers – in Westminster and to press for change.

“I also want faster ambulance response times and to save our community hospitals. I want more affordable housing, better public transport, and good-value shops in towns and in rural villages. And real encouragement for new businesses – including a better deal with Europe.”

One thought on “Chris Naylor named as Lib Dem general election candidate for South Shropshire”
  1. Chris is an excellent and very electable candidate. Anyone in the Ludlow, SS constituency who is distressed by the dishonety, lack of integrity, and utter absence of honour among Mr Johnson with his sad supporters, as well as the self-serving activities of the last few years of our current governmaent should get behind Chris Naylor in next year’s election.
