Alex Wagner is the Lib Dem PPC for Shrewsbury

The Liberal Democrats have selected local councillor and NHS campaigner Alex Wagner to stand for Shrewsbury and Atcham at the next General Election. This puts the party on a fighting footing in the event of a snap election.

Former Labour Mayor of Shrewsbury Jon Tandy will be supporting Alex’s bid to be the town’s next MP. He said: “Everyone in Shrewsbury knows someone who Alex Wagner has helped. He’s never been afraid to stand up and be counted for residents when it matters, especially on issues like GP and NHS provision. I’ll be backing Alex all the way - he’s a natural winner and he’ll work harder than any of the others will.”

Commenting on his selection as candidate, Alex Wagner said: “Shropshire is a wonderful part of the world. I was born at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital in the part of town I now serve, grew up in the countryside on the Welsh border, and my family still live and run a business here. I’m proud of where I live and have a stake in our community.

People here deserve the very best, yet often have the worst services in the  country. Our NHS services are in the fourth-division, our roads are crumbling,and it feels like we don’t have a voice at Westminster.

There needs to be a local choice on the ballot paper next election who is dedicated to banging the drum to get Shrewsbury a fair deal. I’m putting myself forward to do just that.

Our Conservative MP Daniel Kawczynski seems more interested in lobbying for Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern states than he is in getting Shrewsbury a good deal at Westminster.

North Shropshire has a fantastic, hard-working Lib Dem MP who has beentireless in fighting for our county – I want to follow in Helen Morgan’s footsteps and beat the Conservatives here too.

I want to be a constituency-focused MP who puts Shrewsbury first. We deserve a better deal from Westminster, and I’ll make that case tirelessly to whoever forms the next government.”
