Full slate of Conservative Candidates to fight May County elections

Essex Conservatives will once again field a full slate of candidates for May’s County Council elections.

All 75 County Divisions will have a Conservative Candidate in the poll scheduled to be held on Thursday 2nd May 2013.

Campaign Director and Deputy Leader of the Essex Conservative Group, Cllr. David Finch, said: “I am delighted that the Conservatives will field candidates in every Division many of whom are current hard working councillors but many new candidates who hopefully will be joining us in May. It is important that the Conservatives hold off both Labour and the Lib Dems because the last time they ran County Hall as a coalition they virtually left us bankrupt – residents simply can’t afford to let them in again!”

Essex Conservatives have a strong financial track record of running County Hall while investing in front line services and have announced a further £35 million investment into road improvements over two years. Essex Conservatives have also put Highways and the Economy at the centre of their pledges for the election.
