Liberal Democrat Voice Stars of 2015 Part 6

We wanted to honour those Liberal Democrats that our readers felt were true stars of 2015, which has been one of the toughest years in our party’s history. Over the past few days, we have sought out  nominations and now have a rather impressive list that we’ll be publishing in instalments during this week. Here is the sixth  part. Their names come with the comments made about the contribution they have made. Some are parliamentarians, some are councillors, most are grassroots activists. Let’s celebrate them and the many others who are fighting fto keep that Liberal Democrat flame alive. These are our Liberal Democrat stars of 2015.

 Cllr Frank Hindle

He has been a councillor in the town for 25 years he and served as opposition group leader on Gateshead Council during the difficult years of the coalition. He has also been N.E Regional Chair and was the Parliamentary candidate in Gateshead in 2010 and 2015. He has been the election agent for the local authority elections for years. and he is currently starting a term as Chair of Gateshead Liberal Democrats. Frank has dedicated his life to the party and deserves some recognition for his dedication and work.

Dave Hodgson and Christine McHugh

Dave got comfortably re-elected as Bedford Borough Mayor whilst our local parliamentary votes sunk into oblivion. Why ? Because he does a bloody good job as Mayor and is but one cog in an effective local campaign team. Christine very slightly because she is Dave’s partner, but mainly because she is the driving force behind the effective local campaign team that gets much more right than it does wrong. With these two and a small number of others, North Beds Liberal Democrats is a great campaigning team. Sometimes, I wish life was less hectic, but I know without them, we wouldn’t be what or where we are.

Layla Moran

Paul Hindley

One of the greatest thinkers in our party and a credit to the Lib Dems

Kelly Marie Blundell

For her work to promote access and representation in politics for women and people with disabilities.

Dipa Vaya

For her enthusiastic work to increase diversity in the party.

Bryony Davies

Bryony is Mark Williams’ organiser in Ceredigion. She was thrown into the deep end and we achieved a great victory for Mark and the team mainly due to her hard work and dedication. She really does deserve recognition from this. A true Lib Dem star if ever I’ve seen one!

If you have anyone else you think deserves to be on the Roll of Honour, it’s not too late to tell us.
