Conservative Candidate for Bristol Mayor

Bristol Conservatives have announced today that the closing date for applications to stand as the Conservative candidate for Mayor is Monday 16th July.

Bristol Conservative Chairman Lesley Alexander says, "We have had a very healthy number of enquiries from possible candidates, but there is still time to apply. We are looking for a candidate with a vision for Bristol, with leadership skills and with a dynamism to bring exciting changes to the city and to attract new investment and jobs.”

She continues, “We are very open to Conservative supporters who do not necessarily have a previous record of involvement with the party. We are keen to maximize the choice of high calibre candidates from which the final choice will be made."

Anyone interested should contact the Group Agent Mark Merchant on 0117 9736811 or for an application form.

Conservatives will announce their candidate in early August.
