      Hexham Liberal Democrat Prospective Parliamentary Candidate Selected

      Jeff Reid was selected by Party members as the new Liberal Democrat Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC) for the Hexham Constituency at a special Hustings meeting held on Saturday 29 March 2014.
      Jeff is a proud Northumbrian who has a compelling record of political commitment to Liberal Democracy in the county. He has been a councillor for twenty years, and he has also been a parliamentary candidate on three previous occasions. In 2009 he became the first Leader of the new unitary Northumberland County Council, and successfully brought together the seven former District Councils into one, and dealt with the mess left by  the previous Labour administration.

      Jeff said: “ I am delighted to have been chosen by local Liberal Democrats to work for Hexham people and I will be out and about, across the constituency over the coming months. I’m looking forward to meeting people and discussing what they can expect from me as their MP.
