The race to replace my old boss, Don Foster MP, has finally formally got going.
The Bath Chronicle reported that the short-listed candidates to stand on the Lib Dem ticket for Bath in 2015 are:
- Chris Lucas
- Steve Bradley
- Manda Rigby (Lib Dem, Abbey)
- Andy Furse (Lib Dem, Kingsmead)
- Martin Turner
- Wera Hobhouse
I have written before about how big a pair of shoes they have to fill with the departing of Don Foster. But on initial reflection there are some extremely competent candidates on the shortlist to stand in what might be one of the few truly safe Lib Dem seats.
I wish all the candidates the best of luck. I would also love to hear who you want to see as the next MP for Bath and why…let me know in the comments below.
