As a keen cyclist and someone who has spent over 20 years working in the public transport sector Jonathan knows just how important having good public transport, cycling infrastructure and roads are to a community.
As a local campaigner he has a record of working to improve the bus services on the Citi 7 and Citi 8 routes, fought to improve cycle infrastructure and to mend our roads.
But now he wants to do even more.
“It’s great that Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has announced a “City Deal” for Cambridge which will invest millions into our area including vital improved cycling infrastructure,” said Jonathan.
“The local Lib Dem team and I will work to ensure that this money is spent in a way that local residents want.
“However I think it’s terrible that at a time when the Lib Dems are working to improve local public transport the Conservative-run County Council are cutting funding to many local bus routes.
“For a lot of residents - especially older residents – living in villages across our area, buses and trains are the only way they can do their weekly shop or visit friends and family. I think it’s wrong to cut these vital services and along with the local Lib Dem team we are doing all we can to protect and reinstate affected routes,” add Jonathan.
