Councillor is re-selected to fight for Bosworth at next election
LIBERAL Democrats in Hinckley and Bosworth have selected local councillor Michael Mullaney to be their parliamentary candidate.
Michael, the County Councillor for Hinckley De Montfort, has previously stood at the last three elections for the Lib Dem party in Bosworth.
At the last general election, he secured the highest number of votes for any Lib Dem candidate in the entire Midlands.
Speaking at his selection meeting Michael Mullaney, said: “Hinckley and Bosworth is crying out for a new local MP who will fight for local people on the issues that matter.
“For our health service. Our local NHS is facing millions of pounds of cutbacks, Mount Road Hospital in Hinckley faces closure with no replacement Walk-in Centre being offered for our large and growing population.
“We need an MP who will fight for local schools. Leicestershire schools are amongst the worst funded in the coun- try. Local children and young people deserve to have properly funded local schools.
“Leicestershire is the worst funded County in Britain under the Tory government, this means we see services like Libraries and Sure Start Children’s Centres close whilst people are still being hit by rocketing rises in Council Tax.
“We need a new MP who will fight for fair funding for Leicestershire.
“We have a Conservative government that is making a hash of Brexit, and a Labour opposition that is increasingly extreme and divided. People in Hinckley and Bosworth and the British people as a whole need an alternative to the twin disasters of the current Labour and Conservative leaderships.
“If people in Hinckley and Bosworth elect me as their MP, they will have a full-time local MP who will fight for the quality healthcare, education and other vital local services that they and their families need.”
