Chatham and Aylesford Liberal Democrats are proud to announce that they have selected Barrister, Thomas Quinton as their parliamentary candidate for the constituency of Chatham and Aylesford.
Thomas first came to know the Medway towns in the 1990s attending all the local courts through his job as a barrister. A graduate of the London School of Economics, he has a passion for bringing people together and reducing the gap between the different opportunities children have depending on the circumstances of their parents.
Thomas sees equality of opportunity as the key to strengthening our economy and unlocking everyone's potential in life. After becoming a father, himself in his mid-thirties, he made the difficult decision to leave his successful legal practice of 10 years to pursue his passion by helping people build local enterprises. For the last eight years, Thomas has been active in this part of the economy and is a strong supporter of small, local businesses and social enterprises.
Whilst our links to London are crucial to our local economy and wellbeing, Thomas is keen to see the local economy develop to meet local needs even better and more in harmony with the countryside around us. Above all, he wants to see all our children have the opportunities they need to reach their full potential in life.
Chatham and Aylesford Liberal Democrats Constituency Chairman, Cllr. David Thornewell, has welcomed Thomas’s selection as a Parliamentary candidate and has said, 'It is great to put forward someone who is not a professional politician. I am looking forward to Thomas making great inroads into the Chatham and Aylesford vote and presenting an opportunity for our electorate to vote for sensible policies.
