Local man Andy Hagon to stand as Hartlepool Lib Dems GE candidate
If I don't do a good job, I'll have my Mam to answer to!
Hartlepool man Andy Hagon has been selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate in Hartlepool at the General Election on June 8th 2017. Andy said, 'I'm really excited to be standing in my home town. There can be no greater honour than serving the people I've cried with on the terraces, danced with at the Gemini, and sun bathed with on Seaton beach.'
Andy works in education, teaching, and coaching leaders and pupils, but is also an active volunteer, in particular working with young people. Andy said, 'I love working with young people, even though they keep telling me how ancient I am!'
At this election, Andy will be the only candidate focused on opposing Theresa May’s hard Brexit, but he sees local issues as being very important too.
Andy said, 'Hartlepool Liberal Democrats have been speaking to people about the sort of Hartlepool they want. We have listened and produced the Lib Dem Hartlepool Manifesto which you can download from our website
www.hartlepoollibdems.org.uk. No other political party has produced one but we think people need to know what local politicians want to do, to make Hartlepool a better place to live and work.'
Speaking about the type of MP that he would be, Andy continued, 'I want to be the MP for Hartlepool to help people live the lives they want and ensure our young people get every opportunity to be successful in life. And I'll have to do a good job, or I'll have my Mam to answer to!'
