Liberal Democrat Press Release
Ahead of the local elections, Liberal Democrat Leader and Deputy Prime
Minister, Nick Clegg has written to members and campaigners, wishing
them good luck in the elections.

This Thursday across much of England, Liberal Democrat councillors and
campaigners will be standing for election to represent their communities
on their local council. I would like to wish them the very best in those
elections - every vote for the Liberal Democrats and every Liberal
Democrat councillor elected is a step towards a more liberal country.
Liberal Democrat councillors have a well-deserved reputation for
dedication and commitment to their local communities. And our record on
freezing council tax, protecting local libraries and giving pay rises
for the lowest paid council workers shows the difference we make when we
run local councils.
Labour may choose to lie in what they tell people about our record in
government, but I remain very proud of what we have achieved: raising
the income tax threshold and cutting taxes for 23 million ordinary
working people, implementing the Pupil Premium, creating record numbers
of apprenticeships and delivering the 'triple lock' guarantee for
We have only been able to implement these much-needed liberal policies
because of the hard work of Liberal Democrats across the country. That
hard work can make a difference again on Thursday.
