From a Party news release:
Liberal Democrat MP for Cheltenham, Martin Horwood has been appointed as the Chair of the Liberal Democrat 2013 Local Election Campaign.
Commenting, Liberal Democrat Leader and Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg said:
I am delighted that Martin will be heading our 2013 local election campaign.
With Martin’s wealth of local government and campaigning experience, I know he will do an excellent job.
I look forward to working with him to deliver the results our hard-working councillors and activists deserve.
Commenting further, Martin Horwood said:
I’m honoured and a little daunted to be asked to take on this role. It’s no secret that we have taken some hits at local level since the Coalition began.
I know from my own experience in Cheltenham – and from colleagues across the country – that where we fight with confidence and determination, we can win.
I want May 2013 to be a turning point.
