Kieron Franks for Braintree

The Braintree District Liberal Democrats have selected Cllr Kieron Franks as the Parliamentary Candidate for Braintree to stand against the Home Secretary.

Kieron first came to the county as a student at the University of Essex in Colchester and has stayed in Essex after graduating. He has since been elected to serve his community as the youngest councillor ever elected in his district in May 2023.

Kieron has a long background in community activism, improving public transport and creating more opportunities for young people to engage with their local community. As a councillor, Kieron has continued this work and campaigned on other issues such as protecting our green spaces and fighting for proper services for local people.

Kieron said:

"It is a privilege to be selected as your Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Braintree at the next General Election and I am determined to fight for this community. The last 13 years of Conservative Government have decimated local services and thousands of residents across the constituency are struggling against an ever increasing cost of living that the Government is not doing nearly enough about.

It is clear that only a Liberal Democrats MP will serve the local needs of Braintree residents, with Labour already having admitted defeat and the other parties didn’t even stand here in 2019. I look forward to showing the people of Braintree that there is a real alternative to our calamitous Government and that they can achieve a Fair Deal with the Lib Dems."
