Putney Constituency - Andrew Hallett
Andy was born in Crewe in Cheshire as the second of two children. He went to local state schools and became drawn to liberalism initially because of Charles Kennedy and the Lib Dem stance on the Iraq war. Moving to London as a student at the LSE solidified his views as he met a whole new world of people and ideas worth exploring.
After graduating he put his political ideals into practice by working for a consumer rights body. He has campaigned for the Lib Dems both at the centre and on the doorstep and stood for local election in May 2014, receiving many more votes than anticipated in a highly challenging ward and borough. Andy is a passionate advocate for, in particular, equality of opportunity and civil liberties. He also believes that there has never been a better time to make the case for liberalism.
Andy’s priorities for Putney include the redevelopment of Roehampton town centre, housing and sustainable development generally. He wants as many people as possible to benefit from a booming city and a swelling local population.
