Saturday, May 6th saw the launch of the Liberal Democrats campaign to win back the Yeovil Constituency from the Conservatives.
Speaking to a large crowd at East Coker Village Hall, Campaigner Jo Roundell Greene said”
“I fully support an extra penny on income tax to pay for our crumbling NHS, we must support it, we must fight for it.
We know that there are going to be huge cuts to our schools because of the spending freeze. Preston School here in Yeovil will have the equivalent of £180,000 cut from its budget by 2019, this is equivalent to 6 teachers. Our children don’t deserve this.
I will fight like mad to protect our aerospace industry. We’ve seen the jobs at GKN go, and we know there are huge uncertainties at Leonardo - these things have been neglected by our MP.
Our MP has done absolutely nothing to support our towns, our villages and our people.
We are going to start today. We’re going to be the people out there on the doorsteps, we are Liberal Democrats and we are proud of it. Lets go out there and win this election”.
