The Liberal Democrats have announced today that they have chosen their candidate for the by-election in the South ward for Luton Borough Council.
They have chosen local campaigner Richard Hayward.
Liberal Democrat candidate for Luton South in the General Election, Qurban Hussain, welcomed the choice. He said;
“I am delighted that Richard has been chosen to represent the Liberal Democrats in this council by-election. Having been a councillor in Luton for many years I know who important it is to get young people like Richard elected to represent the people of the town and to challenge the useless Labour administration at the Town Hall.”
Richard lives in the ward in Somersby Close and until very recently worked at the University of Bedfordshire.
“I am very honoured to be chosen by the Liberal Democrats as their candidate in this by-election. I look forward to joining Qurban Hussain on the campaign trail and meeting many of the residents of South ward.”
The council by-election will take place on Thursday 6th May, the same day as the general election.
