Paul Edgeworth

Houghton and Sunderland South

Paul was born and raised in Sunderland, attending Southmoor Comprehensive School in Sunderland and then St Robert of Newminster in Washington. He has previously worked in local pubs, at the Stadium of Light, for Royal Mail at Doxford International Business Park and most recently for a call centre in Castletown.

Over the past few years Paul has been involved in Liberal Democrat campaigns across Wearside, fighting to save vital services like libraries, lollipop men and women, regular street cleaning and bin collections. Along with local Liberal Democrat councillor Stephen O'Brien, Paul has also been fighting to stop wasteful spending by the Labour-run council and to prioritise spending on vital city services instead.

It is vital that there is a strong Liberal Democrat voice standing up for local people.
