We are fielding 80 candidates across Cheshire in the local elections on May 2nd.
There are 30 candidates in Cheshire East and 50 across Cheshire West and Chester (CWaC). This is a record number in recent elections and demonstrates the strength of the Party.
With over 100,000 members and registered supporters, we now have a larger membership base than the Conservatives.
Our candidates are campaigning on a wide range of issues, many specific to the local Wards but there are huge issues in both Councils relating to governance with Council Officers suspended in Cheshire East, planning and leasehold issues in new properties in Northwich and the environment where we opposed to fracking.
The Lib Dems are funded locally by member donations, we are not beholden to large private or business donations and voters can be reassured we are acting in their best interests.
Daniela Parker, Lib Dem Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Weaver Vale, commented:
“Lib Dems have been actively campaigning over Brexit and local issues over the last few years and our candidates have a built up a reputation for working hard all year round and not just at election time. We believe that we are in a strong position to win seats on both Councils and the feedback on the doorstep is that our messages resonate with people looking for better local services.”

‘I would like to thank everyone that helped in anyway in the by-election, your time and efforts were very much appreciated, it was my first foray into elections, I enjoyed it, I am much fitter having walked miles and learnt a huge amount!
Although we didn’t win we took a good share of the vote and both Labour and the Greens had reduced shares compared to last time so we have re-established ourselves as the main challengers to the Conservatives.Our campaign was well received giving us a good base for May 2019!
Our by-election campaign in Bunbury is going very well. Mark Ireland-Jones and the team have been busy delivering our third Focus leaflet and canvassing across the ward.Many local members, our Councillors and even certain members of the House of Lords have been helping out too. The reception on the doorstep has been very positive indeed. Only 11 days to go !!
Bunbury is a Ward in Cheshire East Council and the by-election takes place on the 22nd March 2018
