We’d like to congratulate local LIB DEMS who attended this years Liberal Democrat Spring Conference, and especially local councillor, Darren Fower, who collected the award for Best Social Media of the Year – Winner 2014, in York!
Darren told us:
“I’ve always considered connecting through contemporary modes of communication an essential part of local politics and representation. We were the first political party in Peterborough to create a dedicated website, we were the first political party to have a Facebook page, Twitter account, YouTube channel, Pinterest account, presence on LinkedIn etc. I’ve also developed several successful on-line campaigns and sign up forms that have helped enable hundreds of local people to have their say, get involved and express their opinions. All of which are then circulated amongst councillors and senior members of the local party executive.
“It was a pleasure to meet Nick Clegg and our aim now is to focus on even more acute modes of communication to enable people of Peterborough to see some of the hard work and excellent effort by our people, not just at the Town Hall, but out on the streets too!”
It’s the first time that the Peterborough Liberal Democrats have won an award at conference and we’ll now be hoping its not the last!
Liberal Democrat MEP for Peterborough, Andrew Duff, speaking previously about social media said, “…..few local parties can emulate Peterborough Lib Dems who star in this respect.”
