Laura Gordon selected as PPC for Sheffield Hallam

Nick Clegg’s successor as Lib Dem candidate in Sheffield Hallam has been chosen.

Laura Gordon won the selection contest last night.

The Star has more details.

Following her selection by Lib Dem party members on Friday, Ms Gordon said: “I am really honoured to be selected by the Liberal Democrats to be the candidate in Sheffield Hallam. “The Liberal Democrats have a long history in Sheffield Hallam and it is a privilege to follow in the footstep of Richard Allen and Nick Clegg.

Our country faces some tough challenges over the next few years. We’ve got Brexit taking up all the time in Parliament and making us more inward looking while big global issues like climate change are continuing to threaten our way of life.

“I’ve seen first hand while working with Oxfam, Save the Children and the Department for International Development just how much damage these big international issues are having.

“Sheffield Hallam deserves a fresh new voice to stand up for our community in the face of a weak and wobbly Government and a Labour Party that has let Sheffield down.

“Labour have also failed us locally. We’ve seen pensioners arrested at dawn, a local councillor taken to court and the £900 million devolution deal collapse. It’s time to believe in better for Sheffield.”

    A fine candidate , an excellent way forward for our party and that constituency, essential to make an impact already after the controversy with the present mp.

    Many regret the loss to the area and in parliament , with Nick Clegg losing his seat.

    Now the party has a real opportunity to regain it with an excellent potential member of parliament.

    We look forward to seeing much more of Laura in action.

  • Looks like a good choice. People certainly deserve much better than what they’ve got as their MP. And a lot of them must be feeling that right now.

    Good , another excellent woman selected without any need for AWS

  • Many congratulations Laura !!
    Hope everything goes well and we regain the seat back from Labour.

  • Laura is a fab person and would make a fantastic MP. Well done, Sheffield Hallam, for selecting her.

    Jared O’Mara’s communication manager has resigned using the MP’s Twitter feed and colourful language.
