    Here is a brief summary of the recent party Conference in Brighton, from our local party Chair.

    'I spent two days at Conference moving swiftly between the two venues to attend various speeches and learning events. For me the highlights have to be the speeches from three Liberal Democrat MP's.

    Tom Brake exposed the chaos surrounding Brexit and encouraged MPs of all persuasions to call for a People's Vote if they saw that their constituents would be harmed by the outcome of negotiations.

    Our website has been a little quiet lately, but that is not to say that the Plymouth Lib Dems haven't been busy.

    Following an increase in votes at the Stoke by-election in July, we have been putting our plan together for the 2019 local elections (not to mention the ever looming possibility of an early general election). Also, August saw the local party joining up with colleagues from Devon and Cornwall to take part in Plymouth Pride, joining the march and running a stall.

    Connor Clarke, an ex-pupil of Stoke Damerel Primary School, has been selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate for the Stoke by-election. Connor, who recently completed his second year at Plymouth University, has lived in Plymouth since he was a boy.

    Connor said, "It is humbling to have been selected to fight the by-election on July 26th for the Liberal Democrats. I lived for over ten years adjacent to Blockhouse Park, in the heart of Stoke, and after Primary School I was fortunate to be a student at Stoke Damerel Community College. I am well aware of the important role our schools have in their communities and how they must receive proper support locally and nationally to continue inspiring our younger generations. It is thanks to my early education and the support I received, that I was able to go to Plymouth University."

    LIBERAL DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES - 2018 PCC ELECTIONS


    GEORGE MAUNDER - PEVERELL

    My name is George Maunder and I am a son of this great city. I went to school at Montpelier Primary and Devonport High School for boys. I have roamed its streets, climbed its trees, swum in its pools and played in its parks. I have lived in most of the UK's major cities and yet my heart has always drawn me back to Plymouth. I have grown up here during a period of change matched only by its resurgence after WW2.
