We are a band of dedicated individuals pledged to keep liberal, democratic values flourishing locally, nationally and internationally; to promote greater equality, environmentalism and to fight for the people of Dudley, Stourbridge and Halesowen. We care about community-based local politics, and we work hard to get individual Liberal Democrats elected to all levels of Government, with a focus on Dudley Council especially. Our aim is to keep in touch with the local communities through residents' surveys and by distributing our local "Focus" leaflets, not just at election time but all year round.
