Blackpool Liberal Democrats have selected former Fylde councillor Bill Greene, of Lowstead Place, Blackpool, to be the party’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Blackpool South.
He said: “Since I moved to the Blackpool South area, I have made it my business to find out what local people think and to seek to represent those views.
“As a Prospective Parliamentary Candidate I welcome the increased opportunities this will give me to hear the voices of local people. One area of particular interest to me is that of education. I want a fairer society where everyone has an opportunity to achieve their full potential.
“To do that it is essential our education system is effective. I therefore find it both frustrating and worrying when I see the criticisms being made regarding the quality of secondary education in Blackpool.”
