Welcome to Eddisbury Conservative Association
With only a few weeks until polling day it is important that we come together and work to ensure that the Conservatives win an outright majority at this election. This election is more important and difficult to predict than it has been for many generations. The risk of a Miliband/Balls Government, possibly in a coalition with Scottish Nationalists, is frightening.
The Conservatives took over an almost bankrupted country in 2010 yet have achieved the fastest growing economy in all established western countries. If we win by an outright majority this time it will enable us to continue the economic recovery. The achievements of this Government have been immense, even with the drag effect of the Liberal Democrats. A decisive victory for the Conservatives is vital.
Rt Hon Stephen O’Brien MP for Eddisbury, has recently been appointed Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs, OCHA, and Emergency Relief Coordinator. He is expected to take up his post based at the United Nations in New York towards the end of May. Accordingly, after 15 years as Member of Parliament for Eddisbury since the by-election on 22nd July 1999, Stephen will no longer be seeking re-election at the General Election on 7th May 2015. The Eddisbury Conservative Association will now set in train the selection of the Conservative Party Candidate for Eddisbury for the General Election.
‘It has been the most enormous privilege to serve as the Member of Parliament for all the people of Eddisbury over the last, almost, sixteen years. I shall always be grateful for the support and engagement across a wide variety of issues over that time throughout the constituency. In particular I want to pay tribute to the members and activists of the Eddisbury Conservative Association for their support. Together, we have been able to push forward the range of opportunities which have made a real positive difference to my constituents.
I wish my successor as the Conservative candidate for Eddisbury, every good wish for a successful campaign in the upcoming General Election and in returning the Eddisbury seat for the Conservatives. My support for the Prime Minister, David Cameron, in leading the Conservatives to an outright victory at the General Election remains total and I will do all I can to secure that result.’
We also have two Conservative led councils, Cheshire West and Chester and Cheshire East who have both achieved tremendous results over the last four years. We must support our candidates to ensure the Conservatives retain control.
