The Executive Council of Bexleyheath and Crayford Conservative Association voted to re-adopt David Evennett MP as the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for the 2015 General Election on Thursday night, 23 May.
David Evennett has been the Member of Parliament for Bexleyheath and Crayford since 2005 and presently serves in the Government Whips Office as Lord Commissioner of HM Treasury. He lives in Barnehurst with his wife, Marilyn. They have two sons, a grandson and a granddaughter. During his professional life, he has worked as a secondary school teacher, insurance broker and further education college lecturer. He is a communicant member of the Church of England at St Paulinus Church in Crayford and is a supporter of a number of charities, including being a friend of Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice and Honorary Vice President of the Bexleyheath and District Club for the Disabled.
Speaking after his re-selection, Mr Evennett said “It is an honour to have been re-adopted as the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Bexleyheath and Crayford. I pledge to continue to work hard on behalf of all of my constituents and represent their views in the House of Commons. I believe that Conservatives in Government have made real progress during the last three years by cutting immigration, tackling the budget deficit, capping welfare, reducing crime, reforming our schools and standing up for Britain’s interests in Europe.
“Labour cannot be allowed to damage our country again. Their economic and domestic mismanagement has caused real problems that only a majority Conservative Government can repair. Conservatives are also the only Party that can deliver a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU. A vote for any other Party will deny the British people their say.”
