Colchester Liberal Democrats have a slogan, we "work all year round"
This isn't just some meaningless political jargon, it is our work ethic, we don't just pop by at election time then swan off for the next year, we make a point of keeping in contact through regular residents newsletters and surveys. Our Councillors then take your views and represent them to Colchester Borough and Essex County Council.
A prime example of this was this weekend, where we had loads of existing and new campaigners join Cllrs Sam McCarthy and Lyn Barton in their Shrub End Ward on Saturday.
We were out in Castle Ward with our fantastic campaigner Martin Gillingham, who is aiming to succeed Nick Barlow when he steps down in May 2020.
