Neatishead resident Allison Bradnock will contest the South Smallburgh by-election for the Liberal Democrats.
Allison has lived in the area for the past 26 years. She studied at Norwich School of Art and Design (now Norwich University of the Arts) before going to work for the Broads Authority. She now works as a freelance artist and designer. Allison married her husband Stephen in 1990 and they have a daughter and a son.
Allison has been chair of the local village school PTA. She is an active volunteer at Ashmanhaugh and Barton Wanderers Cricket Club and is actively involved in many other community organisations. She is also known for being the creator of the Norfolk Map design which celebrates the county's diversity and uniqueness.
"This really is a crucial election, the question of who runs County Hall hangs on the result," says Allison.
"My aim will be to speak up for local people on issues like care costs; the need for investment in drainage and flood prevention; and the importance of protecting our environment. The Liberal Democrats won the last election here by just 35 votes from the Conservatives. Everyone's vote will count!"
Allison has the backing of local MP Norman Lamb and popular District Councillor Barbara McGoun, both of whom have already been out meeting local people and urging them to support Allison in the election.
