South East Cornwall candidate

I am pleased to announce that Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall has selected Cllr Roger Holmes to contest the South East Cornwall seat at the General Election.

Roger has served Liskeard as an elected member for over forty years. He joined Mebyon Kernow in 1967 and was elected to Liskeard Borough Council the following year at the tender age of only 23. He also served on Caradon District Council from 1973 to 1983.

Roger continues to sit on Liskeard Town Council and has twice served his home town as Mayor – most recently during Millennium year.
A passionate supporter of town and parish councils, he has represented his community on the Cornwall Association of Local Councils for many years.

He was recently elected a director of Neighbourhoods for Change, a registered charity which helps to make life easier for the disadvantaged.
