Coventry Liberal Democrats today said every vote for a Lib Dem MP is a vote to stop Brexit as the party confirmed their parliamentary candidates in each Coventry constituency.
With a UK general election widely expected to be called within weeks, Stephen Richmond will stand as the Liberal Democrat candidate in Coventry South, Nukey Proctor in Coventry North East and Greg Judge in Coventry North West.
Stephen Richmond grew up and went to school in Coventry before going on to work in campaigns to protect and improve UK democracy.
Nukey Proctor is a Senior IT Programme Management Consultant with a degree in Biomedical Sciences. She is a Brightside Mentor and a keen supporter of charities and campaigns that support the development of young people.
Greg Judge is a Medical Research Policy Manager for an international cancer charity. He has previously served as a school governor in Coventry and continues to support education programmes and human rights campaigns.
Speaking following a meeting with local party members, Liberal Democrat candidate for Coventry South Stephen Richmond said:
"Liberal Democrats are committed to stopping Brexit and that starts with taking no deal of the table. Our message to voters in Coventry is crystal clear - every vote for a Liberal Democrat MP is a vote to stop Brexit."
Liberal Democrat candidate for Coventry North East Nukey Proctor added:
"Labour are distracted with internal infighting and Conservatives don't seem to understand that simply repeating 'get Brexit done' will not provide any comfort for the worker at Jaguar Land Rover worried about their job or the UHCW cancer patient who doesn't know what Brexit will mean for their medication.
"Liberal Democrats are working hard to stop a disastrous no deal Brexit, tackle the climate crisis and support public services which have been starved of cash by the Tories and mismanaged by Labour locally."
Liberal Democrat candidate for Coventry North West Greg Judge added:
"People in Coventry deserve better than this right-wing Conservative Prime Minister who has misled the country over Brexit or a Labour Party determined to fight amongst themselves whilst they attempt to present a reheated plan for the economy that risks dragging the UK back to the blackouts of the 1970s.
"If people want an MP who will work tirelessly as a local champion and help stop Brexit, there is only one choice at the next election. The European elections showed that both locally and nationally, the momentum is with the Liberal Democrats."
