Name: Andrew Crick
Candidate for: Henley
Party: Liberal Democrat
Andrew Crick, 41, a public sector consultant, was born in London and moved to Oxfordshire in 2002, where he has since been a parish councillor, parish clerk and founding member of a community shop.
He has degrees from Sheffield and Staffordshire universities.
He is married with two young children, and spends much of his spare time on a family allotment.
He said: “Building on the success of Nick Clegg’s performance on TV, I want to put across the Liberal Democrats’ message locally because generally, when people find out what we stand for, they like it.
“In Henley, the issues revolve around jobs and housing as they do around the country, with many people not able to afford to live or move. Transport is also a major issue here, particularly the state of the roads and the quality of the infrastructure.
“People are worried about their homes and jobs as the recession continues. Our key message is fairness. We believe that society can be fairer, taxes can be fairer and opportunities better for everyone. We want to level the playing field.
“Above all, we want to help people to help themselves.”
