Dan Gallagher is the Liberal Democrat candidate for Chesham and Amersham in the General Election on 12 December.

He has lived in this constituency for nearly 20 years with his wife and two children. For the past 30 years, he has helped run his family business, a housing company that has provided over 10,000 homes across the South East. He has significant experience of working with local and central government through his business and has a deep understanding of the challenges of providing good quality housing and environmental services within the community. Through his work, Dan has been involved with a number of environmental, educational and social projects and has built many social homes in the last few years. Dan is proud to have helped establish a company employing a diverse workforce to develop housing for all.

Campaign logoAs a long-time member of the Liberal Democrats, Dan has campaigned as a volunteer in many elections since the 1980s. He joined the party because he has always believed that Liberal Democrats represent an inclusive, forward-looking party, who seek to build a stronger and cohesive society for all, regardless of race, class, or gender; a party which represents the whole community, not merely the interests of big business or big unions.

Dan cares deeply for education provision. He has first hand knowledge of how children with special educational needs are inadequately supported with insufficient provision to help the most vulnerable young people in our community. Dan wants to see a liberal and democratic government that works with businesses to generate wealth that can be invested wisely to improve the key structures of our society to provide support, security and prosperity for all.

Dan's family keeps him busy away from his work, but he also finds time to indulge in a diverse range of interests, from astronomy to bees, history and politics, interspersed with regular outings to rugby matches. Dan says, "In life I've been lucky enough to come from a stable and advantaged background, giving me the opportunity to give back to society. I want to use my skills and knowledge directly in government to achieve better outcomes for people. I care about others in society especially the disadvantaged and the dismissed. I care about meeting the environmental challenges that we as a country have to face in the coming decade.

    Dan Gallagher, Liberal Democrat candidate for Chesham and Amersham, called for a change in the approach to poverty in the constituency at a meeting with sixth formers at Dr Challoner's Grammar School, Amersham yesterday.

    "According to the Children's Society 20%, one in five, of the children in our constituency are living in poverty. This is simply unacceptable. We are a wealthy constituency - 77% of us own our own home[1], which is considerably higher than the national average of 65%[2]. Yet we have three food banks and a toy bank every Christmas in Chesham.
