David Frearson

Dr Dave Frearson - Liberal Democrat Candidate for Great Brickhill - Buckinghamshire County Council Elections May 4th 2017

Dr Dave Frearson is currently a Parish Councillor. His father was also a Liberal Democrat District and County Councillor for over 20 years in Hertfordshire and was once Deputy Mayor of St. Albans. As such, Dave understands the challenges and responsibilities of being County Councillor.

Dave graduated as an ecologist from Lancaster University with a first class degree and completed his PhD in Agricultural Ecology at Rothamsted Research (Harpenden). He now works in Aylesbury as a regional manager in a water hygiene and environmental consultancy.

Dave has lived in Pitstone for ten years. His children attend the local school.He says Buckinghamshire is a great place to live, with a welcoming community. However he believes that with crumbling roads, central government grant cuts undermining business growth, staff cuts in schools increasing classroom sizes, struggling social care services and insensitive housing developments, the Conservatives are turning Buckinghamshire into shabby, uncaring, regressive county.

"Conservatives are obsessed with driving expenditure down to a bottom-dollar service. I want to see progressive and sustainable change. And that positive change requires investment, which comes in many forms: time, resources, people and, although we have a responsibility to keep public costs low as far as is reasonable, that means, of course, finance.

My vision is to invest in our County so we become the best county and community in the UK. The Buckinghamshire Liberal Democrats will build on our founding values of being welcoming, tolerant and progressive. The Liberal Democrats will invest in our children's future, invest in our infrastructure, invest in caring for our vulnerable and elderly friends and family and invest in businesses through grants and facilities.

I believe all this is possible and I am not the only one. The Buckinghamshire Liberal Democrat group has quadrupled in size in the last 18 months and I am proud to be one of the many talented and determined people joining the Liberal Democrats in this time of uncertainty. We believe Buckinghamshire and the UK can be so much more than the Conservative's unfriendly, shabby future.

The Buckinghamshire Liberal Democrats have a plan to deliver on this. Our plan can be found in our local and national manifestos, but in short we believe in investment to deliver progressive change for our community.

My motto is Dream It, Believe it, Plan It, DO IT.

I look forward to working with you and for you.
