Jack Brereton has been selected as the Conservative parliamentary candidate for the Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election.
Jack, 25, born and bred in Stoke-on-Trent, 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 bringing £500 million of investment into Stoke 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:
“This by-election has come at a crucial time for our country. It is an opportunity for the people of Stoke to send a message that the referendum result must be respected, and to back the Prime Minister’s clear plan to make a success of Brexit.
“A vote for Labour will let them think they can ignore and forget what you voted for in the EU Referendum.
“Over the next few weeks I will be setting out my plan for Stoke-on-Trent Central, and how the Conservatives have a clear plan to deliver what local people voted for and make a success of Brexit.”
