Jason selected to stand again in Colne Valley

Jason has been selected as the Conservative Party’s Parliamentary candidate for Colne Valley following a selection meeting of members at the Conservative Club in Netherton.

McCartney CVCA 19

“I am honoured that local members have backed me to fight the Colne Valley constituency once again. After taking a year break I was overwhelming with the support from local folk of all backgrounds wanting me to stand again

I am proud that me and my team have increased the Conservative vote at successive General Elections from 20,440 in 2010 to 27,903 in 2017.

There is little love here for Corbyn and McDonnell’s hard left politics of hate and division which the current MP has tied herself to.

I am under no illusions though that we face a huge challenge but this is where I live, work and spend my leisure time so I am determined to get the best for our area.

I will fight for the Colne and Holme Valleys and Lindley along with Huddersfield.

Huddersfield is at a crossroads and we need to make sure our area doesn’t miss out on the opportunities from devolution and major transport investments. We need to turbo charge the Northern Powerhouse and tap into Government funding streams to support innovation and enterprise.

It’s only by embracing enterprise, innovation and entrepreneurship that we can create the quality jobs for local people. We’ve all seen the chaos in Venezuela from Socialism. The mayhem of Marxism is not the answer.

I’m frustrated by what’s been going on down at Westminster. Kirklees voted to Leave and we must honour that vote. No fudge, the delay is damaging the economy. It’s not my vote right now, local MPs must deliver. After campaigning in the local elections I saw that both Labour and Tory votes were down in the constituency, Labour losing Golcar and falling back in other wards. I will work hard with my team to get back the trust and support of those that were tempted away by the smaller parties.

In an era of corrosive cynicism and rabid populism I will stand up for our area with decency, integrity and community spirit.

Thank you for all the amazing support.”

Jason McCartney
