Rushcliffe Liberal Democrats have elected local campaigner, Jason Billin, as their Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC).
Jason, who runs his own small design and publishing company, is a long term resident of East Leake where he has served as a school governor and community volunteer. He is widely known across Rushcliffe through his voluntary work as District Explorer Scout Commissioner.
Since joining the Liberal Democrats in 2016, as part of a membership surge that has seen the Rushcliffe party quadruple in size, Jason has stood for County Council election and is committed to helping the party campaign strongly in the Rushcliffe Borough Council elections in 2019.
Jason Billin said on being selected:
“I am humbled by the level of support from our members and am honoured to represent the Rushcliffe Liberal Democrat party.
“Rushcliffe needs a strong local voice from someone who understands the diverse nature of our constituency and is prepared to work across the constituency for all of our communities.
“The Conservatives have held control of Rushcliffe Borough Council for too long, ruling with an obvious sense of entitlement, they are complacent and are failing the people of Rushcliffe who deserve better.”
Rushcliffe Liberal Democrats are confident that, with a strong local candidate in place, the Liberal Democrats can, once again, provide the strong challenge to the Conservatives that Rushcliffe needs.
