A prospective Liberal Democrat Parliamentary candidate for South Norfolk says she is eager to listen to the concerns of local people as she outlined her campaign for the general election in May next year.
Jacky Howe, who finished in second place to current Conservative MP Richard Bacon, with 29.4% of votes in the constituency, said at a recent party AGM at Hempnall that the Lib Dems were learning the lessons of being in government. Her ongoing plan was to discuss issues with residents in places such as Harleston and Diss.
“Our approach was well received, with many people pleased to see that we were present so much earlier than the weeks before the actual election. I plan to repeat this in Diss and elsewhere. I want to hear what people say about their future needs,” she said.
She added: “We are an experienced, honest party and, in the end, the public will give us credit for that.”
