Andrew Hollyer chosen as Lib Dem York Outer candidate

4 Jul 2023

The Liberal Democrats have chosen Haxby & Wigginton councillor Andrew Hollyer to contest the York Outer constituency at the next General Election. Andrew was selected following a ballot of party members and has vowed to campaign for a better deal for the communities that make up the York Outer constituency.

Cllr Hollyer commented “More and more people are turning to the Liberal Democrats as a positive choice for a fairer society, and I am looking forward to continuing to work with local residents to get action on the issues that matter most to them. Improving access to health services is a key priority for me, and I know from personal experience how vital it is. In 2016 I was diagnosed with cancer and saw the best and worst of the NHS throughout my year-long treatment period. As a local councillor my priority is to make a positive difference for the community where I live, and as a parliamentary candidate I will do the same for all of York Outer’s communities.”

At the 2019 General Election the Liberal Democrats’ share of the vote rose in York Outer whilst Labour’s vote share fell, and in the May 2023 local elections the Liberal Democrats polled 14,332 votes across York Outer wards – more than the Conservatives (6,769) and Labour (6,532) combined. The Liberal Democrats hold 18 of the 23 council seats in York Outer.

Cllr Hollyer said “For too long York Outer has been taken for granted by the Conservatives, and many people are understandably hungry for change. I’m determined to offer residents an alternative to more years of Tory neglect and an unappealing offer from Labour locally and nationally.”
