Ever since David Vasmer was elected by Underdale electors to Shropshire and Shrewsbury Town Councils in 2017 he has campaigned against the North West (Relief) Road, as did his predecessor Myles Kenny who was first elected in 1997. #
Like Myles David has delivered a regular Focus newsletter in his ward and campaigned on local issues such as faulty street lights and for the improvement of Monkmoor Rec, which is a much valued recreational space in Underdale.
David has long been an advocate of local campaigning becoming a Liverpool City Councillor in 1980 and a member of the minority Liberal administration. As a result of his experience in Liverpool David was offered a job working for the then Liberal Party supporting campaigning councillors. Even at the University of Kent at Canterbury, where David graduated in Politics and Government, he was a well-known student campaigner and stayed for an extra year taking his first job as Sabbatical Union Secretary.
In 1988 he went on to work in public relations and then spent a few years working for the BBC as a Political Researcher. He left to become a househusband in North Wales and, when his two sons were old enough, he returned to full-time work with Changing Faces, which campaigns for people with disfigurements, and then Epilepsy Wales, before returning to politics as Regional Manager for the late Welsh Assembly Member Aled Roberts. Whilst working for Aled, David and his family moved to Shropshire and it was then that David started campaigning for the Shropshire Liberal Democrats.
