Ben Chapelard has been picked by Liberal Democrat members in Tunbridge Wells to be their next general election candidate.

Ben has represented St James' ward on Tunbridge Wells Borough Council (TWBC) since 2010 and is the Leader of the Liberal Democrat Opposition.

On being selected, Ben said:

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to represent people in Tunbridge Wells. The Conservatives have taken this constituency for granted for too long. The people of Tunbridge Wells deserve better. It will be a privilege to put forward a positive new agenda for our community."

"I'm looking forward to meeting more local residents across the constituency in the coming weeks and months to hear the concerns and address the issues local people are facing."
