|CON 307||LAB 258||LIB DEM 57||OTHER 28|
Name: Simon McDougall
Candidate for: Bognor Regis & Littlehampton
Party: Liberal Democrat
Why I want to be an MP: I have lived in this area throughout my life and went to school locally.
My family still live locally and my daughter attends a local primary school.
During the past 19 years I have served the community as a councillor I have remained in close contact with residents, working for them all year round, and as your MP I would continue to do so.
Our area has been neglected for too long by Conservative councils locally and by the Labour government nationally.
More and more people are telling me they have had enough of these two old parties and are voting Liberal Democrat for the first time – for change.
Our key messages are: fair taxes that put money in your pocket – pay no tax on the first £10,000 you earn so cutting most tax bills by £700.
A fair chance for every child – smaller class sizes, more cash for schools and getting rid of university fees.
A fair future – creating jobs by making Britain greener and investing in public transport, renewable energy and energyefficient homes.
A fair deal from politicians – making politicians accountable to electors and giving you the right to sack corrupt MPs.
People are looking for real change and the Liberal Democrats offer that opportunity.
It does not need to be the same old Con/Lab government we have had for the past 65 years.
The Liberal Democrats can win here in Bognor Regis and Littlehampton.
