    Michael Pettingale is to be the Liberal Democrat candidate for the by-election on June 7th. He lives locally and at the moment volunteers at Citizens Advice and work shifts at Uttoxeter Racecourse while training to become a lawyer.

    Michael says: "The Liberal Democrats just enjoyed a promising set of local election results because of our reputation for hard-working and responsive councillors and the open and outward-looking approach we take to politics. This is the first time a Lib Dem has stood in Crown ward for very many years. On June 7th, I am asking if you would join with others switching their vote to the Liberal Democrats.

    As a party, we saw results greatly exceeding expectations, with a big net gain of 75 councillors and four new councils under Liberal Democrat majority control.
