In addition to Clive Jones, who has been selected as the Parliamentary Candidate for Wokingham, the Liberal Democrats have now announced their parliamentary candidate for Earley and Woodley for the next general election.

Former Mayor of Earley, Tahir Maher has been selected by local members for the new seat of Earley and Woodley. A trained accountant, Tahir now works in projects and transformation for Transport for London. A long-standing Earley resident, Tahir has represented Earley as a Town, and previously Borough, Councillor for many years.

Earley and Woodley candidate Tahir Maher said:

“I am ready to work tirelessly for my community in the new Earley and Woodley seat, as I have done for the people of Earley and Wokingham Borough over the last twenty years. We need to stand up for our local services, our environment, and our democracy, and I will do just that. I am also standing to bring back a caring society and one that values all residents.

“I want to be a hard-working and considerate MP for our area, which has been left behind for too long by the national government.”

Clive Jones, the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Wokingham, said:

“I am delighted that my friend and colleague Tahir Maher has been selected by Lib Dem members in the Earley and Woodley seat to be the Parliamentary candidate at the next general election.

“Tahir is very well known in the constituency and would make a really good MP.

“He’s served our community as a Town and Borough councillor for many years and I know he’ll be a full time MP properly representing his constituents.

“I very much look forward to working with him in the run up to the general election and beyond.”
