Gareth Willis: A Brighter Future for Sevenoaks and Swanley

Gareth Willis

Gareth Willis, Lib Dem for Sevenoaks and Swanley

Gareth is an experienced teacher in Sevenoaks, working with young people to broaden their horizons. He is convinced that a Britain leading in Europe is best for their future. It is also the best way to build a strong economy, better public services, a fairer society and a more sustainable and a safer world.

If elected to government, the Liberal Democrats are determined to use the £50bn Remain Bonus to bring our country back together. Our demomcracy needs to be healed. We will invest and support our public services. We will support lifelong learning and working families, and invest in Mental Health services as a matter of urgency.

Acting on Climate Change

We need more determined action to stop climate change

Government has made the right noises on climate action - but it must move much faster on reducing energy wasted in homes and transport. Our local councillors are putting zero carbon at the heart of local planning. Can you help me to do it at Westminster?

Affordable Housing

Affordable housing needs a plan backed by all our communities.

We need homes for local people who live and work here, with well-planned transport, schools and health services. Government and our district council are squabbling over this. As your next MP I will make them listen to you.

    Gareth Willis is a local user of Sevenoaks Market. He backs the traders' demand that the market be allowed to move out of its drafty car park and into the Market Place.

    All the stall holders have seen business take a knock since Tesco closed - because the number of shoppers in this end of Sevenoaks has dropped.

    Sevenoaks and Swanley Liberal Democrats believe that we deserve better than Johnson and Corbyn. The General Election has profound choices for the future of Britain.

    What has happened since the 2016 referendum is failure to govern for the good of the country, or address the issues that people really care about. The Conservative government ran out of ideas. It was hijacked by "No Deal" Brexiteers determined to remove us from the EU without a mandate, despite the damage to our economy, society and global status. Labour cannot articulate a position on crucial issues or challenge Boris Johnson and is pursuing an economic model that became outdated in the 70s.
