I write in concern about a statement made by incumbent MP Maria Caulfield, claiming the Liberal Democrats neglected the constituency of Lewes for two decades.

Norman Baker was a superb MP, he lived in the constituency and always seen about and around, unlike Ms Caulfield.

In addition, his work to help and support nigh on thousands of people in the constituency since 1997 was worth so much to our beloved towns.

As a councillor in Newhaven, I have known Norman for many years, and he was always willing to go the extra mile for residents. I hope that we see an end to the brief hiatus of a Conservative MP and return to a Liberal Democrat who will stand up for their community locally and nationally.
