Richard is proud to be representing Battersea, the beautiful part of London he both lives and campaigns in for several years. He has campaigned locally to make our home a better place by ensuring Wandsworth maintain libraries, keeps playgrounds free and provides safe roads for both pedestrians and cyclists. He has also served as a school governor at High View Primary School.
Richard has a background as a research scientist and, in this role, has collaborated on research topics with teams across the EU as well as working in labs in Holland and Cyprus.
"As a research scientist I truly came to appreciate the value the EU adds not only through funding unique research, but also by allowing people from across the EU to work together to solve some of the biggest problems we face - from cancer to climate change."
Richard now works in financial services applying innovative technology to protect customers from fraud and cyber threats.
As a local resident Richard commented:
"I was one of the 75% in Wandsworth who voted to remain in the EU. We have been let down by our MPs time and again. They are fast tracking us into a hard Brexit. This is not what we voted for and this General Election is our chance to make sure people in Battersea have their voices heard. Only the Lib Dems are giving the people that opportunity."
Battersea is a prime seat for the Lib Dems in 2017, if you want to stop the Tories’ hard Brexit, a vote for the Lib Dems in Battersea will ensure that.
