Milton Keynesian and school teacher James Cox has been selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate to fight the new Milton Keynes Central Constituency

James, who was born and raised in Milton Keynes, is a secondary school teacher and mental health campaigner. Speaking after his selection, James said:

"I am honoured and excited to have the opportunity to represent the communities where I was born, educated, and raised. 

"Local people feel let down by this Conservative government and are tired of being taken for granted. Rishi's recession and cost of living crisis have made life incredibly difficult; our young people's futures are being sold off with local schools facing real terms cuts; and our NHS is being stretched so thin that local people are facing agonising waits to see GPs and dentists. I want a fair deal for Milton Keynes.

"People in Milton Keynes Central know that their local Liberal Democrats work hard for them and are delivering for our city. We have more councillors in MK Central than any other party and the Conservatives are out of the race. 

"I want to be an MP from MK working for MK."

Milton Keynes Central is a new parliamentary seat established after the recent boundary review. The Liberal Democrats have the most councillors in the new seat (10), followed by Labour (9), and the Conservatives are a distant third place (4).
