NEW Parliamentary Candidate - Martin Goss - his first views
Martin Goss. Known by so many, across the borough. Already Lib Dem Councillor, activist, Group Chair and Cabinet member Martin has now been selected to stand as the Parliamentary Candidate for Colchester.
Martin responded with emotion, appreciation and commitment. 'I am honoured, humbled and delighted to have been selected as Bob Russell’s successor to stand as the parliamentary candidate for the Lib Dems in Colchester. I will work tirelessly as always for the people of Colchester'.
His priorities include pressing the Government to deliver promised infrastructure, to invest in the police and to address local and national deprivation. Adding that 'we may be one of the richest countries in the world, but we have huge gaps in society between rich and poor and this must be narrowed’.
Doing the right thing matters and Martin was equally clear that the local ties do bind 'Colchester is in my DNA. I’ve been raised here. I’ve been educated here, worked here and most importantly, I live here. And I am proud to have been selected to represent our town in the next general election’.
