Lib Dem Candidate for Wenhaston & Westleton By-Election

Thursday 20th September 2018

Andrew Turner has been nominated as the Lib Dems candidate in the forthcoming Suffolk Coastal District Council By-Election.

Andrew is supporting recently elected District Councillor for Southwold & Reydon, David Beavan's high profile campaign to secure a fairer rating and taxation system for second homes and for more affordable housing for local people. He is opposed to the District Council's plans to replace the current Wehaston and Westleton Ward with one covering 19 communities and a loss in accountability. He was the runner up to the Conservative in the contest for a District Council seat in May 2015 and is campaigning hard to win the seat in advance of the planned merger of the two Councils in 2019.

Andrew Turner - a strong local voice & putting the interests of communities first

Andrew and his family have lived in Westleton for the past 14 years.

Andrew has been a Public Affairs Consultant for most of his working life which has included spells living in New York, Brussels and London.

Since moving to Suffolk, where his father's side of his family originated, he has involved himself in local community initiatives including helping draft Westleton's Parish Plan and being a long-standing member of the community speed watch team. Andrew was a leading member of the Lib Dem group submitting an in depth submission to the last consultation on the Sizewell C.

His day job involves working with politicians at the local, National and European level and so he is experienced in the business of working across party lines in the interest of appropriate, proportionate and good decision making.

Andrew became actively involved in party politics after moving to Suffolk. He joined the Liberal Democrats because he was drawn to their open and tolerant approach to society and international relations; their fair and sensible approach to the financing of essential services and their commitment to community and the environment. If elected, Andrew would bring all of these principles to representing the residents of the ward.
