Norwich Liberal Democrats have nominated candidates for all thirteen of the Norwich divisions for the 4th May 2017 elections to Norfolk County Council. All nominations were submitted and accepted, and we will be contesting every Norwich seat this year.

Norwich South Parliamentary spokesperson Councillor James Wright is looking forward to the election campaign. He commented:

"The Liberal Democrats have had some difficult years, but it certainly feels like a corner has been turned locally and nationally."

"Party membership has soared, reaching over 87,000 nationally - over double our membership in 2014."

"We want to build on this success with some strong election results in the Norwich area this year."

Below is a list of our Liberal Democrat County Council candidates contesting seats in Norwich:

Silvia Schmidtova - Bowthorpe
Leigh Tooke - Catton Grove
Ian Leach - Crome
Brian Watkins - Eaton
Emily Cutler - Lakenham
Gordon Dean - Mancroft
Magda Siwiec - Mile Cross
David Fairbairn - Nelson
