Councillor Stan Pajak: A Local Champion for Swindon

Stan Pajak

Councillor Stan Pajak

Stan says, "I am so pleased and honoured to have been made the Lib Dem candidate for South Swindon in the December General Election. My whole life has centred round my home town. My family grew up here and my greatest joy has been contributing to the life of our town through my role as a councillor, working in the community and with the wonderful charities of our town.

This election is all about the direction of the country and the Lib Dems are leading the campaign against Brexit and building a brighter future. I am standing up for a united Swindon and targeting where our town is failing in education, health and social care, housing, a town centre and heritage to be proud of and simply listening to residents."
