Liberal Democrat members in South Gloucestershire have selected their prospective candidates for the Filton and Bradley Stoke (FaBS) and Kingswood parliamentary constituencies, after re-selecting Claire Young in January to fight Thornbury and Yate.

Louise Harris, councillor for the South Gloucestershire ward of Dodington, was selected for Filton and Bradley Stoke, whilst Dine Romero, Lib Dem group leader on Bath and North East Somerset Council, will contest Kingswood.

Louise said: “It’s a great honour to become the candidate for Filton and Bradley Stoke. I’m looking forward to speaking about Lib Dem priorities and values in the area. We know that South Gloucestershire and the country have been let down by the Conservatives on education, the NHS, local services and Brexit, and I’m eager to listen to residents about their concerns.”

Dine said: “The Kingswood constituency is an area with two stories. There are areas of new development here with a commuting population who will be feeling very nervous about their jobs as we approach Brexit day, and there is another group living with deprivation in their community who want answers to Conservative austerity. The Lib Dems demand better than Brexit, which will only make that struggle worse.”

Claire Young added: “I’m delighted to stand alongside a team of talented women for the Lib Dems for the second election in a row. Voting Lib Dem here is a positive choice against the usual disappointing palate of bland politicos that will fill the Conservative and Labour tickets. Across our area, people are starting to demand better from Westminster, and I know Louise and Dine can provide it.”
