That was the seat at which the party threw a lot of money last time round, perhaps because the candidate, Jasper Gerard, had written an admiring book about Nick Clegg.
Emily Fermor was the campaign organiser then and takes over from Gerard, who is now the party's head of press.
She told Kent Online:
"I am incredibly proud to have been selected as the candidate in my home town. It would be a huge honour to represent the people of Maidstone.
"I am proud of our County Town and I believe we need a local person representing us, with energy, enthusiasm and a commitment to the area – something we have not had for a number of years.
"We have a new army of committed activists who will be joining me on the doorstep, making the case for a strong local campaigner who will fight for Maidstone and The Weald."
