Andrew Lewin selected for Lib Dems in Hertford and Stortford

Vince Cable and Andrew LewinCongratulations to Andrew Lewin who was selected on Tuesday night as the Liberal Democrat Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Hertford and Stortford.

Andrew will be challenging incumbent Conservative MP, Mark Prisk. Prisk has been the MP for Hertford and Stortford since 2001, but has recently been asked to repay £7,000 of Parliamentary expenses.

Andrew Lewin said,

I share the public’s anger over the expenses episode, it is essential that candidates tackle this issue openly and offer solutions that can rebuild trust in the system. If I were elected as your Liberal Democrat MP, I can confirm that I would not seek a second home in London. I would commute into Westminster alongside the thousands of people that do on a daily basis.

Born and raised in Hertfordshire, Andrew promises to campaign on the economy, education and the environment, and to be involved with the “diverse range” of issues in his local area.

  • Well, whaddya know. I recognise Andrew, I was at York with him. Good luck to him.

  • Egad – how tall is the Vincemeister?

    Just goes to prove the old addage. Everyone thought Blair was taller than Hague, but its vice versa …

  • Will Andrew be the only candidate to knock on our door? I hope to see him out and about in the rural villages, as we have issues that need to be addressed and in all the time we’ve lived here no one has ever knocked on our door. 🙁
    Good Luck.
