The North West Hampshire Liberal Democrats have selected Luigi Gregori, an Andover-based local champion, as their Prospective Parliamentary Candidate. After a full career as an Army officer, Luigi volunteered for a number of charities and is a school governor. He joined the Liberal Democrats in 2015 and has been heavily involved in local politics. Currently, Luigi is the Andover branch chair.
Following his selection, Luigi Gregori said "I am honoured to be selected as the Liberal Democrats Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for North West Hampshire. At this period in our country's history, we are under threat from the forces of intolerance and narrow ideology. In all this, I believe that and I know that many you of you do as well, the Liberal Democrats offer a beacon of hope and positive action."
"This is not just on Brexit where we are the only large Remain party," Luigi stated, "but also on the other issues that plague the most vulnerable in our society. On social justice, health, education and social care as on so many others, we the Liberal Democrats offer a way forward that will benefit us all as individuals and members of our communities."
Whitchurch Councillor Keith Watts welcomed the appointment: "Luigi is a strong campaigner with deeply held liberal values. He will make an excellent MP." Tadley Councillor Warwick Lovegrove added: "Luigi has consistently championed his local residents and he delivers. As a fellow veteran, he is good news for us all."
