Stephen Robinson has a track record as a hard-working Chelmsford campaigner and Councillor, and he now wants to stand up for local residents at Westminster. His career is in communications in the not-for-profit sector and he currently works with charities that support young people across Essex and community development in mid Essex.
Stephen is campaigning to
- Keep a full A&E service at Broomfield Hospital
- Increase investment in local transport, schools, NHS and other services ahead of new housing
- Stop the Conservatives' hard Brexit from Europe, which threatens over 10,000 jobs in Chelmsford
On Essex and Chelmsford Councils, Stephen has led the fight against Conservative plans to downgrade our A&E. The Conservative councillors voted down the Lib Dem motion backing the A&E.
On Chelmsford Councils, Stephen has led the fight against Conservative plans to cram development into the wrong places without investment in public services. We need housing that is affordable and sustainable, and high-value local jobs. Stephen created and leads the Don't Choke Chelmsford campaign which aims to encourage intelligent development in the area.
A year ago Stephen was proud to be part of the campaign that ensured the Chelmsford constituency voted to Remain in the EU (though the Chelmsford district overall voted Leave).
Stephen has a record of winning elections in the area, and support for the Liberal Democrats is growing. In May 2011 (a tough time for Liberal Democrats), Stephen was elected to Chelmsford City Council. He was elected on to Essex County Council in June 2012, May 2013 and May 2017. In the 2010 General Election Stephen achieved one of the best Liberal Democrat results in a key seat against the Conservatives, increasing the share of the vote in Chelmsford substantially. In the May 2017 local elections the Liberal Democrats won more votes than the Conservatives. On 8th June the choice is between Stephen and the interests of the local community, or an outsider parachuted in from Cambridge.
A vote for Stephen Robinson and the Liberal Democrats is a vote to change Britain's future.
