Hinckley Times - - NEWS -

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.”
