Lib Dems fighting in West Suffolk

West Suffolk Liberal Democrats are fielding thirteen candidates throughout St Edmundsbury and Forest Heath in the Suffolk County Council elections. This is the largest number of candidates in the area for some years.

The majority of County Council seats throughout Suffolk are being contested by the Liberal Democrats.

The Lib Dem manifesto for Suffolk sets out our six priorites for local people:

The nation is in turmoil with whole sections of local communities viewing each other with suspicion over their views on Europe, immigration and the economy. Many people feel that there is no one to speak up for them or that their future is under threat. A divided nation is in nobody's interest.

The Liberal Democrats are a united party and want to see a united Britain. People are continuing to turn to the Lib Dems as a voice of reason and moderation. The evidence is in the results of recent by-elections.

Going into coalition was in the best interests of the country but, ultimately, not in the best intests of the Lib Dems. The Lib Dems lost a large number of MPs in the subsequent 2015 General Election.
