Anna Wellings Purvis chosen as Lib Dem candidate for Walsall South

by Ian Shires on 12 May, 2017

Walsall Liberal Democrats are pleased to announce details of their Candidates in the upcoming General Election on 8th June

Walsall South – Anna Wellings Purvis

Anna qualified as a Science Teacher and she taught students aged 11-18 until curriculum changes in the face of fewer resources made it impossible to do a good job. She presently works as a compliance coordinator, which includes checking legal compliance, tracking jobs on SAP and assessing risks of some activities in the renewables industry.

Anna, who grew up in New Zealand has spent most of her adult life living and working in England. She has been the Membership Development Officer for the Hemel Hempstead branch since October 2015.

Anna says:

I want people to be heard and I would like to better represent Walsall South in Parliament. I have also been passionate about the environment and the desire for better public transport.
I want to bring a more evidence-based approach to decision-making to make sure the right decsions are made.
My experience as a teacher allows me to recognise people are individuals and cannot be treated as if we are all the same with the same needs. I am unafraid to speak up for people but happy to listen, and enjoy a challenge.

Published and promoted by Roy Sheward on behalf of Ian Garrett, Isabelle Parasram and Anna Wellings Purvis (Liberal Democrats) at: 144 Redhouse Lane, Aldridge, Walsall, WS9 0DB.
