Our Parliamentary Candidate: Andrew Murday


Liberal Democrat candidate for Skipton and Ripon, Andrew Murday, will be campaigning for action to tackle the cost of living crisis, the NHS crisis, and the sewage scandal.

Dr Murday was formerly a consultant heart surgeon in the NHS, and has represented Pateley Bridge and Nidderdale on North Yorkshire Council since 2022. Since his election he has proven to be a resolute advocate for residents. He has taken a particular interest in children and family issues as well as health and adult care.
He is chair of Nidderdale Natural Landscape (previously the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and sits on the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.

Dr Murday said: 'It is always a great honour to put yourself forward to represent the people you live with. The towns, villages, and countryside of Skipton and Ripon, where i have lived and worked for the last 15 years, make the place very special.

The Liberal Democrats are on the up after beating the Conservatives at the May local elections and winning four stunning parliamentary by-election victories since the last general election.'

Responding to Rishi Sunak calling a general election, Dr Murday said: 'For years our area has been taken for granted by an out-of-touch Conservative government that has failed to get the basics righ and has lurched from crisis to crisis - now it's time for change.
