Sunday 21 December – Selected for Wansbeck!

mainclubOn Friday night I was delighted and honoured to be voted as the Conservative Party’s candidate for Wansbeck and Morpeth. You can see the press release here on the Association’s website. The selection meeting was held upstairs at the Conservative Club in Morpeth (photo here from the MCUC website).

As I said in my opening speech, one of the things I firmly hold to be important about the Conservatives is that the paid up members in each Association get to vote on their general election candidate – it is the reason for paying your subs.  Though I got a few tougher questions from the floor, it was a friendly and positive event, rounded off with a mini quiz night afterwards. Sample question: which MP claimed £91.94 from Wickes for rock salt to deal with a snail incursion? Answers on a postcard to Blyth Labour Party. And you can check out The Guardian.

I am very grateful for the support shown to me by the rank and file members of the Morpeth and Wansbeck Conservative Association. However my new role is both important and necessary: Wansbeck has done very well under a Conservative led government, and yet so much more can be done with proper representation. It’s no good just promoting one part of the constituency and not the rest of it.

There’s lots of work to do, but I look forward to making the positive case for change in Wansbeck.
