Team of Chelmsford Lib Dem candidatesThe Liberal Democrats are standing candidates in every one of the 24 wards across the district of Chelmsford in the local election on 2nd May. In every ward the real contest is between Conservative and Lib Dem. In fact, in some wards there are only Lib Dem and Conservative candidates.

The Lib Dem candidates come from a wide range of backgrounds including teachers, engineers, scientists, finance experts, surveyors, local business-people, charity workers and musicians. There are more female than male candidates and they cover all ages and all backgrounds.

The team is headed up by current Group Leader Cllr. Stephen Robinson, standing in St Andrew's ward; Deputy Group Leader Cllr. Jude Deakin, standing in Marconi ward, and Parliamentary Candidate Marie Goldman, standing in Moulsham & Central ward.

The Lib Dem candidates include people who have stood for election on previous occasions but nearly half the Lib Dem total have only joined in the last three or so years. What they all have in common is a desire to stand up for their area on Chelmsford council and make England's newest city safer, greener and fairer.
