THE Liberal Democrats in Weaver Vale have selected Northwich resident Daniela Parker as their new prospective parliamentary candidate.

Having worked in the charitable sector with victims of crime, Daniela is active in her community and has worked with her neighbours to improve the appearance of their urban village and campaign for safer roads.

She has also objected to more housing developments in the area, to reduce pressure on the area’s infrastructure.

Daniela is passionate about issues including healthcare – in particular the provision of mental health services – as well as the criminal justice system, including both the rehabilitation of offenders and the experience of victims and witnesses.

Daniela said: “I am thrilled to have been selected as the PPC for Weaver Vale. I am committed to working with all the members of the local community and demonstrating that our party’s policies can deliver a real improvement in people’s lives.

“Whether that is campaigning against fracking in our constituency to a fair funding model for our NHS I believe we offer a much needed alternative to the Labour and the Tories who are being dictated to by the extreme minorities in their parties.

“I am delighted to already have been able to start putting together my campaign team, and in the new year we will start planning our campaign strategy with my goal to become the Liberal Democrat MP for Weaver Vale.”

Born to an Italian father and British mother, Daniela has been campaigning for an ‘Exit-from-Brexit’, believing strongly that the decision should be returned to the people by way of a people’s vote.

Mrs Parker replaces previous candidate Paul Roberts, who is standing in the Cheshire West and Chester Council elections this spring.

Paul said: “I am delighted that Daniela – who lives in the constituency – has been appointed as the Weaver Vale PPC.

“I’m sure she will make a real impact and get a much improved Lib Dem result at the next General Election, whenever it happens.”
