Gloucester Liberal Democrats have today announced that well-known councillor Jeremy Hilton will be the parliamentary candidate for June’s general election.
A local man born in Gloucester, Jeremy has 25 years of public service as a local councillor behind him.
With the recent county council results putting the Liberal Democrats into second place on the popular vote across Gloucester, Jeremy Hilton is confident that he can mount a serious challenge to the Conservatives in becoming Gloucester’s next MP.
Jeremy said “The Labour party are a lost cause with many previous supporters planning to vote Liberal Democrat this time.
“As a local resident, I know the city like the back of my hand. I am determined to become Gloucester’s representative at Westminster. The city needs someone who is not afraid to speak up and get things done.”
On the big issue of this election, membership of the European Union, Jeremy Hilton, is clear where he stands. He voted yes in 1975 and voted remain in 2016.
He supports remaining in the Single Market and the Customs Union were Britain to leave the European Union.
Jeremy Hilton will vote in parliament to give the British people the final say on the Brexit deal.
He concluded: “The British people should decide if the Brexit deal is acceptable. If not, we should also have the choice to remain in the EU.”
