Empowerment and freedom - Liberal Democrat Cllr Nick Sandford

I am sometimes asked what Liberal Democrats stand for. We don’t get the media coverage the other two parties receive, so you might be forgiven for not knowing the answer to this question.

That’s why we put a big emphasis on education, well funded health care and strong social service provision.
