Mike Martin - Prospective Lib Dem MP for Tunbridge Wells

A Fresh Start

Getting rid of the worst government in living memory starts in Tunbridge Wells. It starts right here, right now. 

I’ve knocked on thousands of doors across the towns and villages of our constituency over the past 18 months. Listening to you, two themes keep coming up: the town centre of Tunbridge Wells, and the way that we build houses. 

If elected, I want to help lead this community to achieve three things: 

  1. To shape a vision for the town centre that is fit for the 21st century. This means a town centre that has a greener environment, with less traffic, and more things for youngsters to do. This means better public transport, and better traffic management. And it means a lot less empty retail, and space for more people to live in the town centre.
  2. To build more affordable housing here and, crucially, to make sure that there is sufficient infrastructure provision for the houses that we already have. This means enough GP surgeries, and school places, and public transport.
  3. To fight for improved access to GPs, Dentists, and social care places across the constituency.  

I have many years of experience in the public, private and charitable sectors in bringing different people and organisations together to solve complex problems. I love my home—here in the heart of Tunbridge Wells—and I want to use my skills and experience to make it a better place, and give it a fresh start. 

At a national and international level, I have significant expertise in geopolitics and conflict (see my bio). The world is not getting any safer and I expect that, if elected, my focus at a national level will be on helping guide the UK through the turbulent years that we face. 

For me, standing for Parliament is about serving constituency and country. Recent years have been full of politicians using problems to create division. It should be the opposite: problems are opportunities to build agreement and find solutions.
