Sarah Martin for Plymouth Moor View
Sarah Martin has been selected as the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Plymouth Moor View constituency.
Sarah has worked most of her life in marketing and communications, recently for the local NHS.
Like so many others Sarah only became a member of the Liberal Democrats following the 2016 referendum. She has been very active in local and national elections and was elected as a Saltash Town Councillor in 2018.
"After spending ten years of my life post-university working in Germany, and seeing how the movement of people, goods and services within Europe changed and enhanced our country's landscape, I was appalled to think that we had voted by such a narrow margin to leave.
"Three years later so many people feel politically homeless. The landscape we are faced with at Westminster has changed beyond all recognition, and the things that should be important to us are taking a back seat. That is unacceptable.
"As a country we need to move forward. Brexit has sapped enough of our energy but also our democratic power and needs to be put to bed with a second referendum, which must include the option to remain. Our success as a party in this year's local and European elections has shown how important that is to the general public.
"We need a renewed effort to get the Liberal voice heard in Moor View and to show a way forward out of the mire of current politics. Mostly I want to offer the residents of Moor View a more tolerant, outward-looking and positive future.
Sarah is standing for the Lib Dems to stop Brexit, build a fairer economy, tackle the climate emergency, give every child the best start in life, and more. Find out about the Lib Dems plans in detail here: libdems.org.uk/plan
