Lib Dems Elect Kindersley As Parliamentary Candidate for South Cambs

South Cambridgeshire Liberal Democrats have selected Sebastian Kindersley as their next Parliamentary candidate. 

Sebastian, 47, who polled more than 20,000 votes for the Lib Dems in the 2010 election taking the party’s share of the vote to 34 per cent, was elected at a meeting of party members on Sunday evening. 

His election comes ahead of a possible by-election for the seat if South Cambridgeshire MP, Andrew Lansley is appointed the new EU Commissioner. 

Sebastian is a former Lib Dem leader of South Cambridgeshire District Council. He represents Gamlingay on the district council and Cambridgeshire County Council. 

"It is a great honour to be selected again to fight for South Cambridgeshire people,” he said. “This is where I have lived for many years, where I have a business and where I have been working hard for local people for 15 years already - this is the community I know and belong to. It is such a huge privilege to have this opportunity again."
