Matthew Winnington on the General Election: Time to kick the Conservatives out of Sleaford & North Hykeham

The Liberal Democrats have chosen campaigner Matthew Winnington to contest the Sleaford & North Hykeham constituency this General Election.

Matthew is campaigning for a better deal for the communities that make up the Sleaford & North Hykeham constituency and wants the Conservative party to be kicked out of North Kesteven.

The Liberal Democrats have seen a revival in recent years across North Kesteven, winning in what was previously a safe Conservative heartland.

Last December, the Liberal Democrats won the Billinghay Rural by-election and in March the party came within 80 votes of beating the Conservatives in the Heckington Rural by-election.

Labour have declared Sleaford & North Hykeham a non-battleground seat.

Liberal Democrat candidate Matthew Winnington is campaigning for action to save our NHS, tackle the cost of living crisis, and end the sewage scandal.

With his experience working as a civil servant and more recently in the charity sector, alongside being a senior councillor and cabinet member for adult social care and public health, Matthew can bring real change to Lincolnshire. 

Responding to Rishi Sunak calling a General Election, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary candidate for Sleaford & North Hykeham, Matthew Winnington, said:

“This election is a once-in-a-generation chance to kick the Conservatives out of power and finally deliver the change our area so desperately needs.

“It’s clear that only the Liberal Democrats can beat the Conservatives in Sleaford & North Hykeham, it’s neck and neck here and every vote will count.

“People are telling me they’re fed up with years of chaos and neglect under this out-of-touch Conservative government.

“After years of struggling to get a GP appointment, soaring rents and mortgages and our rivers being polluted by filthy sewage, it’s time for a change in Lincolnshire.

"My family has lived in this constituency for generations and it is over 100 years since most of Sleaford & North Hykeham has had anything other than a Conservative MP - that is long enough. 

“As the next MP for Sleaford & North Hykeham, I will stand up for local health services, tackle the sewage scandal and be a strong voice for our community in Parliament.”
