The good people of Redhill have got to know me well since 2019, but for the rest of the county let me introduce myself. My Name is Dan Powell, I am a County Councillor and now the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Hereford and South Herefordshire.

Since I was selected by my local party in Dec 2023, The team and myself have knocked on well over 2000 doors, and the most common question I get asked is, Why Should I Vote For You?"

To which I often respond with 'I believe in life we have a choice, we can accept how things are or we can have the courage to change things and try to make ourselves and our communities better.'

When I was 11 | broke my back, playing rugby, aged 12 the NHS fixed it.

I went from being educated at St Marys to becoming educated at home. When I finished Secondary School I wanted to go to Hereford 6th form so I got the grades needed.

Following this I chose to have jobs in the 'real world'. I was an apprentice estate agent, a cook and now I sell flooring for a living.

Relatively quickly upon joining the workforce I realized that no one really stands up for young working people. I wanted to make a difference so I stood for election at age 20 and got elected to Hereford City Council, the youngest councillor at the time.

Living and working in Herefordshire, I know the shocking NHS waiting times whether that is in A&E or to see a Dentist. I know how badly we need to sort out the traffic in our city. Like you I know the problems in paying the bills, rent or mortgage. I understand these problems as I, like you, deal with them daily.

In Herefordshire we do have a choice, that is, do we want to continue down the same road we are on with the current conservative offering or do we want change?

For Prime minister it's a fight between Labour or the Conservatives, but in Herefordshire where we have only ever elected a Liberal Democrat or Conservative MP.

The choice is between our current MP or myself.

I Believe it's time for change.
