LOCAL CAMPAIGNER SELECTED AS PARLIAMENTARY CANDIDATE

Residents from across the constituency of Brecon & Radnorshire have selected CHRIS DAVIES as the Conservative Party’s Parliamentary candidate for the 2015 General Election.

 

After his selection was announced, Chris Davies said:

 

“I am honoured to have been chosen by local residents from across Brecon & Radnorshire.

 

“Brecon & Radnorshire has been poorly treated by both the Welsh Assembly Government and the Westminster Government for much of the last 15 years.

 

“We need a new Member of Parliament here in Brecon & Radnorshire to ensure that this neglect does not continue.

 

“It is my job over the next two years to gain the trust of all the residents of Brecon & Radnorshire and to convince them that I can be the new and stronger MP that we desperately need. Unlike others, I will not shy away from addressing the problems that we and our country face.

 

“I am very much looking forward to getting back out onto the doorsteps to explain to residents what it is I will fight for and how this area and their lives can be improved with the right Member of Parliament.”
