Wrexham Liberal Democrats have selected Tim Sly as their candidate for Wrexham at the upcoming General Election.

Tim lives in a small village near Wrexham with his wife Barbara. He was educated at Swansea University and began his career in South Wales – he now runs a technology company based in Cheshire.

He has served as a local councillor, a school governor, and as a volunteer for an arts charity.

In the announcement statement, the Wrexham Liberal Democrats say: “As a local councillor on Halton Council, Tim took a keen interest in planning and housing matters. He worked on the regeneration of one of the area’s most run down estates to create high quality affordable housing.

“Outside work and politics, Tim’s interests include walking, cycling, music and military history as well as spending time with his family.

“Tim believes firmly that Wrexham needs a growing and thriving economy to reach its full potential as the powerhouse of North East Wales. The first step to achieving this is to Stop Brexit.”

“I’m delighted to have been chosen to stand as the Lib Dem candidate in Wrexham,” said Tim.

“While the other main parties squabble about how to leave the EU, the Lib Dems have made a commitment to Stop Brexit in order to preserve jobs, protect employment standards and boost investment in public services for the people of Wrexham.

“I’m looking forward to getting out and about and putting forward a positive case for our vision.

“The Lib Dems want to see a prosperous and successful Wrexham as part of an open, tolerant and thriving Britain. We want to see a Wrexham where everyone continues to enjoy the benefits of EU membership.

“I intend to work with the people of Wrexham to create a brighter future for this area.”
