Today the Liberal Democrats announced the list of MEP candidates for the EU elections scheduled for 23rd May, with the list of seven candidates for the Eastern Region led by Dr Barbara Gibson, Hertfordshire County Councillor for Haldens division of Welwyn Garden City.
Barbara said: “It is clear that Brexit is a failure, and that the people want a way out of the mess created by the Government. This election is the first step, an opportunity to send a powerful message that the people demand a final say, and the opportunity to stay in the EU.
“As the largest pro-European party in England, the Liberal Democrats are the best positioned to make that happen.
“What we need in MEPs is dynamic leaders who can effect change, who will lead reform, rather than using the EU as the scapegoat for the failures of our own successive Governments.
“I’m pleased to lead the list of Lib Dem candidates for the region, and hope to have the opportunity to make the EU deliver even more for Hertfordshire and the Eastern Region.”
