Reading Liberal Democrats are delighted to announce the selection of Daisy Benson as our prospective candidate for the Reading West constituency. Daisy is a popular and hard working councillor for the Reading Borough Council ward of Redlands where she has built up a reputation as the people’s champion.
Within the Council group Daisy is Deputy Leader and Chair of the Housing and Health Scrutiny panel. She also chairs the Safer Communities (South) Forum.
Nationally Daisy is one of the Liberal Democrat representatives on the Local Government Association’s Safer Communities Board and she is also a board member of the Empty Homes Agency.
Daisy was nominated last year for the Lib Dem Voice “Best Use of Social Media” award in recognition of her innovative use of Facebook and has just been shortlisted for the Online Councillor of the Year award from the Local Government Information Unit.
Daisy Benson says: “I’m starting late in this race but I’ve got loads of energy and I’m confident I’ll be able to get my message out there. I want to build on what I have done in Reading over the past four years so I can help more people and change Reading West for the better.
“In particular I plan to campaign for better housing for all, better health services and real action to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.”
