Ben Thompson is the Liberal Democrat candidate for the County Council Division of New Milton.
Recently elected as a Town Councillor in May 2019, Ben is also the Chairman of New Forest Liberal Democrats.
“The Conservatives take New Milton and Barton-on-Sea for granted. The roads are in a worse state than ever before. Protecting the environment is an afterthought. Care services for the elderly are at breaking point. I demand better for New Milton.
“That’s why I’m standing. We need a fresh new voice to speak up for local residents on the issues they care about - crime, healthcare, and local jobs. Instead of out-of-touch Conservatives putting their own interests first, let’s have a Liberal Democrat councillor and a Liberal Democrat Council putting the people first.”
