It’s a headline I couldn’t resist. Totton Councillor Matt Kangarani has decided to leave the conservative party and has joined the Liberal Democrats.
Matt is a very successful businessman, owning two businesses in Totton as well another in Dibden Purlieu.
He has served with me on Totton & Eling Town Council for some years, always making a significant and useful contribution.
I was delighted when Matt approached me saying that he felt that he would be much more comfortable as a member of my party and so I quickly welcomed him to the fold!
The door is always open, especially for others who have experience working as a Councillor.
We still have some vacancies for candidates for the elections due to take place in May next year.
