A warm welcome to our new Co-Editor, Caron Lindsay

I guess that, in the end, it was quite fitting that Mark Pack’s final day with LibDemVoice should have been last Thursday, the day of the Eastleigh by-election: it’s always good to go out on a high. For those who missed the news first time round, Mark has — after over six years as my Co-Editor in name/spirit — stepped down from the team to spend more time with his other 73 roles within the party (plus two day jobs).

caron lindsaySo the end of one era, but I hope also the dawn of a new one. I’m delighted to say that Caron Lindsay, already a member of the site’s editorial collective, has agreed to become this site’s new Co-editor alongside me. Few Lib Dems will need an introduction to Caron. She is the author of the superb Caron’s Musings blog, elected member of the party’s Federal Executive, treasurer of the Scottish Lib Dems, and a former case-worker for Willie Rennie. She is also one of the nicest, most grounded, full-of-common-sense Lib Dems I know. Thank you, Caron, for saying yes so willingly.

Our aim is that, together with our fellow editors who contribute their time and energies freely and cheerfully, we can continue to bring you the breadth and depth of coverage of all things Lib Dem. As we’ve always said, though, the success of LibDemVoice depends on you, our readers. First, by continuing to read us. Secondly, by contributing your thoughts, whether as comments or articles or in our surveys. And thirdly, by donating to help us to pay for the site.

Today also marks the final day of one of our Day Editors, Paul Walter. Paul has looked after Monday for us brilliantly for the past 15 months, and has liberally sprinkled these pages with his ‘photo fairy’ magic. Paul will, I’m sure, continue to blog at his own site, Liberal Burblings. Thank you, Paul, for being such a great colleague.

We’re always on the look-out for people to help run LibDemVoice. If you think that might be something you’d enjoy doing, please do drop Caron or me a line.

    Yes, and we need to think more about how we can make this a place where many people enjoy taking part in the debate.

    Flu and Eastleigh have taken over my life these last few weeks but there should be some breathing space now to think about what you said.

  • “She is also one of the nicest, most grounded, full-of-common-sense Lib Dems I know.”

    Agreed ! – welcome to the new role Caron 😉

  • Congratulations, Caron! I hope you’re over the ‘flu by now?
