    At a packed hustings on Saturday, Dan Gallagher was selected from four hopefuls as the parliamentary candidate for the Liberal Democrats in the Chesham and Amersham constituency.

    The local businessman, who has lived in the area for 17 years, vowed to "make history and put right wing Tories out."

    In his powerful hustings speech, he said his strength was being able to appeal to traditional Conservative voters who think there is no other option.

    Environment Working Group

    Having proposed the declaration of a climate emergency, the Liberal Democrats are setting up a local Environment Working Group to progress our thinking and actions on a wide range of environmental issues, not just climate change, and we are looking for members to join the group and help us. Meanwhile, the Council will be developing its Climate Change Emergency action plan proposals.

    Article: Jul 26, 2019

    Both nationally and here in the Chilterns we're experiencing a surge in the number of new members. Our membership has quadrupled in the past four years. It surged around the time of the European elections and following the election of Jo Swinson as our new Leader, we're currently getting a steady flow of new members every day.

    A full meeting of Chiltern District Council (23 July) has agreed a motion to declare a climate change emergency. The proposal was made by Liberal Democrat Councillor Peter Jones. Chiltern follows more than 90 other UK councils in agreeing similar declarations.

    Declaring a climate change emergency is intended to mean that governments mobilise society-wide resources at sufficient scale and speed to protect civilisation, the economy, people, species, and ecosystems from the risk of climate change.

    In addition the Liberal Democrat councillor told the council "our words will tell our residents that we have listened to their concerns, that we care too, and that we will take action as we can."
