Lynne Featherstone was unanimously reselected this week as Hornsey & Wood Green Lib Dems candidate for the next General Election by the party’s AGM.
Ms Featherstone reselection was a formality given her accomplishments in first year and half of being a MP and the success she has achieved in championing the cause of her constituents, such as forcing Hornsey Hospital redevelopment up the agenda and making sure residents do not suffer in police estate reorganisation.
The Haringey party will now be turning its attention to selecting an equally first-class candidate for the winnable Tottenham seat.
Lynne Featherstone MP comments:
“The last eighteen months have certainly been a steep learning curve and it is a great honour to represent all my constituents.As the vote took place and every hand in the room was up, I was completely overwhelmed with a sense of pride.
“And it was without a moment’s hesitation that I put myself forward again for the opportunity to continue fighting for what’s right for the people of Hornsey & Wood Green.”
Cllr Richard Wilson, Chair of Hornsey & Wood Green Lib Dems added:
“Hot on the heels of our Council election success this summer, Lynne’s reselection is one of those milestones that shows how far the Lib Dems have come in Haringey.
“We are fortunate to be able to put someone forward with such energy and commitment to the local area and its people.Lynne has certainly proved herself as a first class parliamentarian as well as a local champion – long may she continue.”
