Good luck to Beki Sellick in the Peterborough by-election

Peterborough makes history today. It’s the first parliamentary constituency to hold a by-election following the successful recall of an MP.

Lib Dem candidate Beki Sellick has been working hard. People who have been to Peterborough have said what a brilliant candidate she is and how you can’t walk down the street without loads of people stopping her because she has such a high profile there.

She talked about her plan for Peterborough in an interview with the Parliamentary Review:

Sellick’s plan is based around three key areas: the economy, the environment and public services. As a business owner herself, working as a sustainable transport engineer, she sees these three issues to be linked.

Identifying Peterborough’s economic growth, she warned of the low skilled nature of many new jobs and their risk of being automated. To combat this, she stated that “a priority will be building up Peterborough’s economy and skills, supported by the independent university.”

The second key priority is the environment, particularly focusing on congestion and air quality. By reducing congestion, she hopes to improve transport, health and sustainability in one.
