Matthew Turmaine was selected by Watford CLP as their PPC at a meeting yesterday (Sunday). Watford is 61st on Labour’s target seat list.
Matthew lives in Watford, is a Councillor for Holywell Ward and works for the BBC. Speaking after the selection, Turmaine said:
“People in Watford are being let down by a Tory-led Government that is standing by doing nothing to tackle rising prices and making working families pay more while millionaires are getting a tax cut.
“People in Watford are being let down by a Liberal Democrat Mayor and a Liberal Democrat Council that is passing on the ideological cuts their MPs vote for in Parliament to local people.”
Congratulations to Turmaine, and commiserations to the other shortlisted candidate Kath McGuirk.
