Another PPC selection came to fruition last night. Robin Meltzer was chosen as the Liberal Democrats’ parliamentary candidate for Richmond Park, North Kingston and New Malden. He said on his website:
I am thrilled to have been selected as the new Liberal Democrat Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Richmond Park, North Kingston and New Malden. A huge thank you to the members across Kingston and Richmond who supported me and to the many volunteers who worked on my selection campaign.
Robin lives in Kew and tutors children in English and English Literature. He has won the Party’s Belinda Eyre-Brook award for his campaigning for the party.
He also received an award this year from the cross-party Clean Air for London campaign to recognise his years of campaigning to combat air pollution in the city.
Robin is also here on Twitter. Once Eastleigh is over, he’ll take the fight to the Tories and Zac Goldsmith in Richmond Park.
