Zöe Franklin has been selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate for Guildford constituency. Zöe has lived, studied and worked in Guildford for over fifteen years, and currently lives with her husband and young family in the north of Guildford.
Commenting on her selection, Zöe said: “I am delighted and honoured to have been selected by Guildford Lib Dems to serve the people of Guildford. I am passionate about Guildford – its people and places – and will work hard for the whole community.
“However, I am only too well aware that Guildford does have its challenges. I intend to listen to residents and campaign on ensuring Guildford has the right housing and infrastructure for its needs, in particular social and affordable housing; improving our transport infrastructure – whether it’s road surfaces, more reliable and regular train and bus services or encouraging more sustainable transport methods, Guildford deserves better.
“The country faces a period of uncertainty, and steps need to be taken to protect people’s jobs, public services and our economy as a whole.
“The Liberal Democrats will go into the election as the only party committed to protecting Britain’s role in the heart of Europe.
Zöe added: “The Liberal Democrats are well placed to fight a general election whenever it is held and I am raring to go. Since the referendum we have signed up more than 17,500 new members nationally, and a large number of these are in Guildford.”
