Harriett Seeks Re-Election in West Worcestershire

HARRIETT BALDWIN's name will be on the ballot paper to contest General Election in West Worcestershire on June 8.

She delivered her nomination papers to Malvern Hills District Council in person, with her Election Agent Michael Hodges, confirming her as the Conservative candidate in the up-coming national poll. She then started campaigning in Malvern Link.

Harriett was unanimously selected by party members at a meeting last week and is fighting the seat for a third time. Harriett was first elected in 2010, when she won with a majority of nearly 7,000 and was re-elected two years ago tripling her majority to 22,578.

As well as being a strong and active local MP, Harriett has served as a Treasury Minister and is currently Minister for Defence Procurement.

Harriett commented: “Nominations to contest the General Election in West Worcestershire opened yesterday and I was pleased to put my name on the ballot paper.

"The campaign to secure re-election has now started and I have been out meeting people on the streets of Malvern.

“In the last seven years I have worked hard across the constituency helping to represent local people, pressing for further investment in our local NHS, investment in flood resilience, fairer funding for our local schools, investment in infrastructure such as road, rail and rural broadband and helping to grow our local economy. Much has been done but there's more to do.

“I backed Theresa May to be Prime Minister last year. I now welcome the decision to give people in West Worcestershire the chance to back her to deliver strong and stable leadership for our country on June 8.”
