"People are a little bit disillusioned of this idea that the only choice of vote you have is Labour or Conservative," said Nukey Proctor, from Coventry Liberal Democrats.
"Those are the only options, you have to pick your least worst favourite.
"It's actually about providing local people with an alternative and with an opportunity to say I do want something different and things done a different way."
Ms Proctor said she is fed-up with the 'stale two-party politics' in Coventry and wants to shake up Coventry City Council.
Labour currently have a massive majority on the council, holding 39 of the 54 seats - 40 but for a by-election - with the opposition Conservatives on 13.
She feels there is "definitely a desire for a different kind of politics", criticising what she believes has been "constant bickering" between the city's two biggest parties and "political games".
"We want people to have the opportunity to vote for something different and vote Lib Dem and have their voice be heard," she said.
The party is hoping they can gain their first city councillor since Russell Field lost his seat in Upper Stoke to Labour in 2012.
