Michael is an experienced local campaigner in Hinckley and Bosworth. He is currently County Councillor for Hinckley..
At both the 2010 and 2015 general elections Michael came a strong second to the Conservatives. Labour were a distant third. The Lib Dems are the main opposition to the Conservatives on Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council and have an equal number of county council seats as the Conservatives in Hinckley and Bosworth. This gives the Lib Dems a real chance of winning Bosworth at the next general election.
Michael’s past jobs include working as a carer for elderly and disabled people. He understands that these vital jobs are often underpaid and is pleased that when the Lib Dems were in government they helped take low paid workers out of Income Tax.
We hope that some of Michael's enthusiasm and campaigning knowledge will rub-off on us locally as we prepare for County Elections only 6 months away.
