Introducing Nigel Quinton
Your 2017 Lib Dem Parliamentary Candidate

Nigel QuintonThe General Election on 8th June is your chance to choose a strong new MP who will fight for a better Welwyn Hatfield

Nigel Quinton was brought up in a Liberal family in North London, Middlesbrough and then Bristol. After he left home his parents moved to Lancaster, where his mother was a Liberal and then Liberal Democrat Councillor for over 20 years. After graduating from Cambridge as a geologist, Nigel had a successful career in the tough world of oil exploration in a mix of large and small companies. He was a founding director of a successful publicly-listed company based in Hertfordshire, and has served on the Boards of two publicly-listed companies. Whilst his career has always been technically-based, he has added commercial analysis and international negotiating skillsets, and now works as a freelance consultant.

Nigel has always been passionate about standing up against the old vested interests represented by the Conservative and Labour parties. He believes that empowering individuals and small organisations, and sharing best practise is the key to improving our society, freeing people to develop their potential whether in commercial, public service or charitable activity.

He has served on the local Borough Council and is now the County Councillor for Handside & Peartree Division. He is a keen advocate for green energy, has lectured on Peak Oil and been involved in Transition Town initiatives, and has also campaigned on many other local issues, including the loss of local hospital services.

Nigel has lived in Lemsford since 2004 with his wife Jane and they have two daughters aged 18 and 22. In his spare time he remains a keen cricketer and is chairman of Bamville Cricket Club in Harpenden.

.The issues facing the people of Welwyn Hatfield are ones I have been campaigning on for the last 10 years - a vibrant and sustainable economy, the NHS, our environment, and improving our political system.

People here are rightly concerned about the threat to local services, be it public transport, or the NHS, and the need to improve our local economies and community infrastructure. If elected I will fight to make sure our communities get the resources they need.
