Colin Martin is the Liberal Democrat candidate for the
South East Cornwall Constituency on July 4th.

His inclusive, principled and thoughtful approach is winning support from many people who have previously supported other parties.

Our Conservative MP has failed to deliver for our area, whilst supporting FIVE disastrous Conservative Prime Ministers.

Labour's candidate was only selected weeks before the election and has no record of local action.

Your next MP for South East Cornwall

I first moved to Liskeard nineteen years ago to work for Colin Breed, who served as South East Cornwall’s Liberal Democrat MP from 1997 to 2010. Colin was observant, curious and thoughtful; so he figured out how to get things done, like securing funding for the Dobwalls bypass and establishing the “Grocery Code” to protect farmers from abuse by supermarkets.

Witnessing Colin’s selfless and effective community service inspired me to stand for election too; and after working for a Cornish fuel poverty charity; running a social enterprise,; and working as a maths teacher, I gained a comprehensive understanding of local issues. Seven years ago, I overturned a huge Conservative majority to be elected as the Cornwall Councillor for Lostwithiel, and I have used this platform to lead many successful campaigns. For example:

  • In 2021, I set up a cross-party working group to tackle the housing emergency. Four of the ideas I put forward to control holiday homes have now been put into law.
  • In 2022, I called for independent experts to guarantee that Cornwall’s green transition is as fast and fair as possible. This “Cornwall Climate Commission” is now up and running and will ensure that everyone gets the help they need to cut their energy bills and carbon emissions.

But there is so much more to do! 

Votes cast in South East Cornwall on 4th July will not stop Keir Starmer becoming Prime Minister, but they will determine who represents our area in Parliament.

Our Conservative MP has failed to secure any funding for the Tamar Crossings or the deadly A38. 

If you elect me to serve you in Parliament, I will work tirelessly to deliver safe roads; affordable homes; a thriving, green economy; and public services we can all be proud of. And of course, to abolish the Tamar Tolls!
