Sevenoaks Liberal Democrats are pleased to announce the selection of Alan Bullion as their prospective general election candidate for 2015. Alan passionately believes that Sevenoaks needs an experienced campaigner who will fight hard for local people and their services.
Alan stood in Sevenoaks in the 2010 general election, coming second to Conservative MP Michael Fallon. He is an accomplished local campaigner throughout West Kent. Over the years Alan has fought hard on many issues, including calling for more Alzheimer’s care nurses in Kent, fighting to save local post offices, village shops and pubs, improve train and bus services, and collecting thousands of signatures to keep free parking for local residents.
Alan’s current job is working as a senior agricultural policy analyst and special reports publisher, and he has previously been a journalist, and advertising sales manager for the New Statesman. He also worked for Hodder and Stoughton, a book publisher formerly based in Dunton Green near Sevenoaks, for almost 20 years, getting to know the constituency, its people and its issues well.
“Before the last general election I got to know every village and hamlet in the constituency, as well as the towns of Sevenoaks, Swanley and Westerham. I am particularly keen to preserve the beauty and vitality of the North Downs area and the local environment, and am an active member of the Campaign for Rural England.” Alan is also active in the European Movement, United Nations Association, and the Campaign for Real Ale.
Alan currently lives in Tunbridge Wells and commutes daily to London. He was born in Pembury and grew up in Tonbridge, attending Tunbridge Wells Grammar School for Boys, where he later become a governor, and is currently chair of its alumni association. Alan subsequently took an Open University degree and a PhD, and is a keen supporter of life-long education.
