Caroline Voaden is the newly selected Lib Dem Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Totnes constituency.
Caroline is a former correspondent and editor with Reuters news agency and more recently owned and ran the Social Fabric craft business in Totnes which closed last year. She currently works in marketing for a local business and lives in Totnes with her husband Stuart and younger daughter Laura.
“I joined the Lib Dems because of its united stance on Brexit and I will continue to campaign for a meaningful vote on the deal once we know what it is. I don't belive it is undemocratic for people to be given the chance to change their minds once the full facts are clear.
“However the Lib Dems aren’t a one policy party and I fully support our initiative to raise taxes by 1p in the pound to support the NHS and social care. I also want to see an increase in funding to the police to make sure that effective community policing isn’t lost forever, fair funding for all of Devon’s schools and I want to push for truly affordable housing in our communities and the provision of social housing for rent.
“I hope to meet lots of you as we campaign for local elections next May in Torbay and for the next general election – whenever that happens! If you would like to contact me about any issues or would like to help my campaign to unseat Sarah Wollaston, then please get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook at facebook.com/carolinevoaden. There’s lots to do and every hour or two helps!”
