A professional biologist and curator of Eton’s Natural History Museum has been selected to represent the Liberal Democrats in the running for a parliamentary seat in Windsor.
George Fussey, who is a councillor for the Eton and Castle Ward, has lived in Eton for nearly 30 years and is the head of career education at Eton College.
Cllr Fussey also serves as vice-chairman of governors at Eton Porny School and is a Fellow of societies including the Royal Society of Medicine and the Society of Biology.
He said: “I’m really proud to have been chosen to represent Windsor which has been my home for nearly 30 years.
“I hope that as a candidate who actually lives and works in the constituency I could represent the needs of local people much more effectively in parliament.”
Antony Wood, chair of the constituency party, said Cllr Fussey had proven himself to be a dedicated and highly capable Royal Borough councillor.
He added he was delighted to see the Eton and Castle ward councillor chosen to represent the Liberal Democrats.
Cllr Fussey will contest the Windsor seat in May's General Election.
