Rossendale Free Press - - News -

●● James Daly (cen­tre) se­lected as prospec­tive Con­ser­va­tive Par­lia­men­tary can­di­date for Bury North. Pic­tured with sup­port­ers NORTH Manor coun­cil­lor James Daly has been se­lected as the prospec­tive Con­ser­va­tive par­lia­men­tary can­di­date for the Bury North con­stituency.

The solic­i­tor and school gover­nor, 42, got the nod ahead of Laura Evans and Jane Howard.

Mr Daly has been Bury Coun­cil party leader since 2017 and also con­tested the Bolton North East seat at last year’s gen­eral elec­tion. He was first elected in North Manor ward, which in­cludes Sum­merseat and Hol­combe Brook, in a Novem­ber 2012 by elec­tion.

Fa­ther-of-two Mr Daly, who lives with wife Jo in Green­mount, said he be­lieves it is ‘time for a change’ in Bury North, which James Frith took for Labour from David Nut­tall last year.

He said: “The res­i­dents of Bury North de­serve bet­ter than what Labour has to of­fer. It’s now time for a change and I be­lieve I am the right per­son to rep­re­sent them as their Con­ser­va­tive MP, stand­ing up and fight­ing for them in the heart of West­min­ster. If elected I in­tend to stand up for the hard work­ing peo­ple here on the is­sues that re­ally mat­ter to them.”

He said pol­icy pri­or­i­ties were ex­tra in­vest­ment in the area, jobs, pro­tect­ing the green belt and bet­ter pub­lic ser­vices.
