What do Lib Dems believe?

While sometimes it's difficult to know what you're actually going to get when you cast your vote, when you vote for a Lib Dem candidate this is what you're going to get.

"We are here to build and safeguard a fair, free and open society. We want to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity. In other words, we care about others and value freedoms."
(which is why we don't much like Brexit, because we lost the right to freely live and travel to 27 other countries amongst a lot of other things).

That's all well and good we hear you say, but what does that actually mean for your local area?

Well it meant that we wanted to make sure no school children were going to go hungry at half term, so we campaigned with others to cause the government and council u-turn,

it means to that during the #covid19 pandemic that individuals and local groups have worked alongside other volunteers (and continuing) to make sure vulnerable people are connected

and it means that after putting forward the motion for a climate emergency to Wiltshire council, we've been involved in lobbying about the Westbury incinerator proposal and its health consequences, we want to help residents find sustainable and greener energy choices at council and town council level.

Those are just three examples of recent action from local lib dems in Wiltshire - just imagine how nice it would be to hear Wiltshire Council making a difference with us in charge from May 2021.

If you think this sounds like you, join the Lib Dems and get involved. You really can make a difference.
