Originally published by Chelmsford Liberal Democrats

Stephen Robinson has a track record as a hard-working, Chelmsford campaigner and Councillor, and now wants to stand up for local residents at Westminster as our MP.

Stephen Robinson with Lib Dem teamOn 4th May 2017 the Lib Dems won more votes than the Conservatives in the local elections across the Chelmsford constituency. So on 8th June it will either be: Stephen Robinson, or the Conservative outsider (parachuted in from Cambridge) who is elected as the MP.

Stephen is campaigning to

  • Keep a full A&E service at Broomfield Hospital
  • Get investment in local transport, schools, NHS and other services AHEAD of new housing
  • Stop the Conservatives Hard Brexit from Europe, which threatens over 10,000 jobs in Chelmsford

> On Essex and Chelmsford Councils, Stephen has led the fight against Conservative plans to downgrade our A&E. The Conservative councillors voted down the Lib Dem motion backing the A&E.

> On Chelmsford Councils, Stephen has led the fight against Conservative plans to cram development into the wrong places without investment in public services. We need housing that is affordable and sustainable, and high-value local jobs. Stephen created and leads the "Don't Choke Chelmsford" campaign (http://dontchoke.org.uk)

> A year ago Stephen was proud to be part of the campaign that ensured the Chelmsford constituency voted to Remain in the EU (though the Chelmsford district overall voted Leave).

A vote for Stephen Robinson and the Liberal Democrats is a vote to change Britain's future.

In May 2011 (a tough time for Liberal Democrats), Stephen was elected to Chelmsford City Council. He was elected on to Essex County Council in June 2012, May 2013 and May 2017.
