John Howson, who recently won re-election as an Oxfordshire County Councillor, has been chosen to fight Banbury in the general election.
He says, "I am delighted to have been asked to stand as the Liberal Democrat for Banbury at the general election. The next few years are going to be critical as a badly handled Brexit could significantly damage prospects here in Oxfordshire. We therefore need a strong opposition to hold the Tories to account.
Electing a Liberal Democrat here would send a powerful message to Westminster about the importance of prioritising jobs over ideology."
