Last night, (19th September) at a meeting of the Bexleyheath & Crayford Executive a vote was held to decide on the re-adoption of Rt Hon Sir David Evennett MP as the Conservative Party candidate for Bexleyheath & Crayford at the next General Election.
Sir David spoke passionately on what an honour it had been for him to serve the community in which he lives. He highlighted his previous work in Government and the responsibilities he’s carrying out now in his new role as the Vice Chairman of the Conservative Party. He pointed to the enthusiasm being picked up locally and across the country for the new Boris Johnson government, and expressed his desire to take the fight to Labour directly to ensure Jeremy Corbyn never gets the keys to Number 10 and explained how detrimental to Britain a Corbyn led government could be.
Sir David then proceeded to take questions from the members present. The Executive subsequently voted in favour of re-adopting Sir David as our candidate and thanked him for his continued dedication and service to our association, to our constituency, and most importantly to our country.
