Working Together; Building the Team
To win for Stockport and Cheadle we need to do all the things we do here so brilliantly, and add to that to reach out to new voters, and voters who used to vote for us, and give them reasons to want to vote Liberal Democrat again.
I've been working across the constituency - and lending a hand to our neighbours in Stockport and Hazel Grove - because working together is the key to success.
2017: General Election - Candidate for Macclesfield
I was candidate for Macclesfield at the June General Election. Selected with just six weeks to campaign, I inspired the team to learn canvassing and campaigning in Cheadle and then take those techniques back to Macc. And we held our deposit.
2016: Chair of Tower Hamlets Liberal Democrats
I was chair of the Local Party in Tower Hamlets for 2016, where this year we delivered the only constituency in London to increase our votes and our vote share. We did that by recruiting new faces, drawing in people from across the region and making our campaigning fun. And by knocking on five thousand doors in just six months.
Innovation and team-building
I organised the Lib Dem Bloggers interviews to get ordinary members unique access to the Party's leaders and top rank politicians. Nick Clegg, Vince Cable, Lynne Featherstone and many others, all talked candidly to our teams, answering questions but also involving us and putting the members at the heart of the Party.
I speak at conference, write for Lib Dem Voice, develop policy and gather support for motions because I'm keen to see the Liberal Democrats develop distinctive positions, particularly to achieve Freedom from Poverty.
I organise policy discussions because I believe people join a political party to talk politics. I champion the ideal that in Liberal Democrats any member with an idea has the opportunity to make Party policy.
Liberal Democrats can be proud of our history, but it's the future that we're working for
