Julian Cummins

I was very sorry to hear of the death of Julian Cummins on holiday in Majorca.

Julian, a former editor of Liberator, was the first Liberal candidate I ever worked for. This was in the council elections in York in 1980 when he narrowly failed to take a seat from Labour.

He was later a councillor in Leeds and the Liberal Alliance candidate for Pudsey in the general elections of 1983 and 1987.

Later. There is more about Julian on the Yorkshire and Humberside Lib Dems site.

I knew Julian, albeit not well, back when I was working in Leeds. As you say, a sad loss.
