Candidate selected to contest St Ives East

Adam Roberts has been selected to contest the upcoming Huntingdonshire District Council by-election in the St Ives East ward. 

A current resident of the Ward, Adam aims to build on a record of Conservative investment in St Ives, which includes millions of pounds in improvements to both the outdoor and indoor leisure centres, significant provision for facilities at local parks and recently a £1 million secured by County Councillor Ryan Fuller for road and junction improvements. 

Launching his campaign, Adam said: 

"St Ives East needs a strong representative who will roll up his sleeves and work with the Conservative majority at Huntingdonshire District Council to get things done.

"This means standing up to independent Councillors' plans to flood the areas north of Hill Rise and Marley Road with more than 4,000 new homes, working with fellow Conservatives to provide even more investment in St Ives and getting the highways repairs team to pay more attention to our roads and pavements.

"But this election is about more than these issues. It is about the choice between a lone voice of opposition and the strength of your local Conservative representatives.

"Only a Conservative Councillor will have the strength and ability to resist 4,000+ new houses and continue the tradition of Conservative delivery for St Ives.

"I will fight for the investment and support our area needs. This is my home and my community too, and I am not afraid to stand up for residents and ensure that our town continues to be a great place to live."
