I was pleased to see so many people turn up to the launch of my campaign to be the next Councillor for Wainbody.
The by-election is being held on 5th September and I will be campaigning on local issues including the proposal to build houses on the beautiful Kings Hill area and issues with Warwick University expansion.
I'm sure national issues like the damage that no-deal Brexit will do to Coventry will also be on people's minds.
It's going to take a strong campaign to defeat them, but Lib Dems have been achieving big swings from the Conservatives in Council by-elections across the country, in York, Richmond, Cardiff, Gloucester and Daventry. The same can happen in Coventry.
If you would like to help my campaign to beat the Conservatives in their heartland in Coventry - get in touch.
