Arnold Saunders has been selected as the Conservative Party candidate for Bury South at the next General Election.
The local councillor and rabbi was selected by Conservative members in the constituency on Thursday.
Speaking after the selection, Arnold said: “I am delighted to be selected as the Conservative candidate in my home constituency where I have lived, worked and studied virtually all my life.
“I know people living and working here want a local MP to get on with the job and deliver on the Government’s plans.
“The people’s priorities in Bury South are the Government’s priorities and I want to help halve inflation, grow the economy, reduce debt, cut waiting lists, and stop the boats.
“I have a positive vision for people here and I am determined to take the fight to Labour and reclaim the seat for the Conservatives that we actually won in 2019 – before Christian Wakeford ” crossed the floor”!
“Until the next election, I will be working hard to show people here I am the right person to become their MP and help improve the lives of families right across the constituency.
“Bury South needs a locally based Conservative MP to help people there improve their lives.”
