North Cornwall Conservative Association officially launched its General Election campaign promising to return twice elected Scott Mann to Parliament.
Party members met at Wadebridge Town Hall to rally behind Mr Mann, who has served as Member of Parliament for North Cornwall during the previous four and a half years, promising a positive campaign.
Speaking on behalf of North Cornwall Conservatives, Association Chairman Richard Wheeler said:
“Scott has already proven that he is a fantastic advocate for our North Cornwall community and has been a champion for the constituency where he was born and raised. Our association was pleased to re-adopt him unanimously and the members are fully behind his campaign.”
Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate Scott Mann said:
“Brexit will play a big part in this election, I am standing for the 60% of North Cornwall constituents who voted to leave the EU and who have been repeatedly told that they did not understand the question or didn’t realise what they were voting for. I am also standing up for the true democrats in our community, the people who tell me on the doors that they voted to remain but respect the referendum result.
“Beyond Brexit, the Conservatives have an exciting local programme. We have already balanced the school funding formula to ensure that North Cornwall’s children receive the same as those up country, and we have pledged £450m for enhanced local NHS services.
“I have had the great honour of being Member of Parliament for our constituency since 2015. North Cornwall is my home, it’s where I’m from, and if I am re-elected, I will continue to put our local interests first.”
