Julian Launches Campaign for Re-election
May 2, 2017
Julian has been unanimously re-selected by York Conservative Association to seek re-election at the upcoming General Election, after which he launched his campaign in Earswick with his wife Victoria and local campaigners.
Commenting Julian said, “This election offers a very clear choice between a strong Conservative government under Theresa May determined to deliver for ordinary families and unite our country, and a chaotic Labour Party led by Jeremy Corbyn, who would devastate our economy and undermine our security.”
Julian has represented York Outer in Parliament since the seat was created in 2010.
Over the next six weeks of the election campaign, Julian will be out campaigning in communities and speaking to local residents across York Outer. He has a clear plan to deliver for York over the next five years. Julian will campaign to secure a better NHS deal for York and North Yorkshire as the current the national funding formula that still disadvantages York, particularly its elderly and rural population. He will also continue working to safeguard York’s Green Belt, ensuring any development strikes a balance between local housing need and preserving the character of the area.
Julian is also committed to improving the city’s transport network, and will push for investment to upgrade the Outer Ring Road, A64, and deliver rail improvements. He is also lobbying for fairer funding for York’s schools, which have not received their rightful share of funds for far too long.
Fast, affordable broadband for all is essential, and Julian will work to prevent rural communities from being left behind. He will also act to ensure there is strong flood protection for York, with all neighbourhoods having the defences they need.
Following his campaign launch, Julian said: “I am looking forward to speaking to local residents over the next few weeks, and listening to their views on the challenges and opportunities facing our city and country at this important time.
“If re-elected I will continue to put York first, and to remain accessible to all constituents. York needs a strong government to increase prosperity and support job creation, and ensure we can put more funding into our schools and local NHS. Only a competent Conservative government will be able to increase investment in York’s transport infrastructure, broadband and flood defences, and negotiate in the national interest to secure the best new relationship with the EU. As a constituency-focused MP, I am proud to stand on my record serving the people of York Outer, and it is a privilege to represent our area in Parliament. I hope the people of York Outer will put their faith in me once again on 8th June.”
