Martin Garnett has been selected as the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Erewash.
Martin, from Draycott, is an experienced candidate having previously fought the Erewash seat four times.
At his hustings speech Martin particularly noted his job as an associate professor in pharmacy. This gives him experience in dealing with large public meetings, and also a scientific background.
Martin said: “In our increasingly technological world we need more politicians who understand the technology which underpins our modern society and how we can use technology more effectively in society”.
Martin is a school governor at Friesland.
