Jack Brereton is 26, was born and bred in Stoke-on-Trent and lives locally with his wife Laura. He is a local councillor and has been a school Governor at Hillside Primary since 2011.
As Deputy Leader of the Conservative Group and cabinet member for regeneration, transport and heritage he has been responsible for delivering £500 million of investment into Stoke-on-Trent and improving local infrastructure. Also through his role as a councillor Jack has been involved with a number of activities within the local community, including helping to run litter picks, setting up new residents groups and organising community events.
Commenting on his selection, Jack Brereton said:
"I’m the only candidate in this election who is backing the Prime Minister’s plan to secure the best possible deal from Brexit. I’m the only candidate who, if elected as your MP, will help strengthen the Prime Minister’s hand at the negotiating table and work to make a success of Brexit locally.
"If we don’t back the Prime Minister and help her get this negotiation right, we risk our local economic security and jobs here in Stoke-on-Trent South are at risk. That’s because if the Conservatives don’t win here, that risks Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime Minister.
“Over the next few weeks I will be setting out my plan for Stoke-on-Trent South, and how the Conservatives strong and stable leadership can take our country forward and deliver what local people voted for, making a success of Brexit.”
