Very busy day. Hustings in Leeds went very well as did the hustings in Hinckley this afternoon. It was lovely meeting up with a lot of people that I hadn't seen for ages. It was also great seeing my old friend Angie Harris this morning and I am delighted that she is supporting me.
We had a good Devon and Cornwall Hustings meeting this evening in Exeter. I have now just arrived in Leeds so that I am here for the hustings in the morning and then off to Hinckley in the afternoon for another hustings. We are certainly getting around!
The Royal Mail has collected the voting pack, ERS are about to press the button to send the e-ballot to all members the has email addresses for.
Vote once ..vote for Liz Lynne . Vote for a strong, independent, credible candidate. With the energy and time to be a full time President.
Continuing my series of guest posts from candidates to succeed Tim Farron as Liberal Democrat President (of whom there are now three, after Linda Jack dropped out), here is Liz Lynne setting out her plans to reform the party's structures.
It has become even more apparent to me over the last few months that the structures of the Party need to be radically reformed. I have been taking soundings from different people from all sections of the Party about the problems and what needs to be changed. The main problem that everyone has highlighted is that no one seems to know how each body of the Party relates to the other and who is responsible for making which decisions. Nobody seems to have a strategic overview of how it works.
I was out and about campaigning today in Swansea with our candidate Janet Thomas for the Upland by election. We were only ten votes behind Labour last time so there is all to play for. Janet was a former councillor for the ward so was well known by people on the doorstep. There is an action day on Saturday if anyone can make it.
We had a good afternoon campaigning for Jeremy Meal for the Bramhall South and Woodford ward by election in Mark Hunter's Cheadle constituency. We managed to cover a fair amount of ground and had a very good response on the doorstep.
