Stoke Conservatives Choose Their Candidates!

The Stoke-on-Trent Conservatives have chosen their three candidates to stand in the General Election in May 2015 – after a lengthy process involving interviews and months of campaign work, to ensure the best quality people are put forward to represent Stoke-on-Trent.

All three candidates have already been out and about across the city, gauging opinion as the election draws closer.

Cllr Ben Adams will stand in Stoke-on-Trent North.
He has served as a Councillor in Staffordshire since 2007 and is currently Cabinet Member for Learning & Skills. He also runs his own business and has previously co-owned an Apple Computer dealership.

Cllr Liam Ascough will stand in Stoke-on-Trent Central.
He led his Borough Council to be the first Conservative authority to adopt the Living Wage last year and works as Cabin Crew for Virgin Atlantic.

Cllr Joe Rich will stand in Stoke-on-Trent South.
He’s a top lawyer, working in regulatory and consumer law and has played important roles in charity projects including the Bar’s Young Homeless Appeal for Centrepoint.
