Congratulations to Jo Churchill, who has been selected to succeed David Ruffley as the Conservative candidate for Bury St Edmunds.
Here is our brief bio of Cllr Churchill:
- Cllr Jo Churchill. A Lincolnshire County Councillor, where she represents a ward in Grantham, Churchill is the Finance Director of a scaffolding firm. As well as serving as a school governor, she spends her spare time campaigning for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Those present at the selection were apparently impressed with the strength of the shortlist – so while our commiserations go to James Cleverly, Zehra Zaidi and Helen Whately, I have a feeling we may well hear more of each of them in the future.
