A county councillor will stand at next year's Welsh Assembly elections as the Conservative candidate for Montgomerushire.

Cllr Russell George was selected at a meeting at Welshpool Town Hall beating off the challenge of fellow county councillor Aled Davies and former parliamentary candidate Suzy Davies.

Welshpool Town Hall was packed with 250 Conservatives  who were able to question and listen to the three candidates.

Cllr George, who took the nomination in the first round of voting with over 50 per cent of the ballot, said he is delighted to have been given the opportunity to stand in the election.

“If elected next year I will fly the flag for Montgomeryshire in Cardiff,” he said. “I want to be a responsible candidate focussed on finding solutions to the many problems we face.

"I had decided that if selected I was intending to fully commit my time to the job of candidate. It is my intention to win next May and to fly the flag for Montgomershire in the Assembly. I am keen to focus on finding solutions to the many problems we face and to listen to peoples concerns.

"We need to retain and improve our local services and to find more efficient  ways of delivering services. We need to provide support for local business to combat high unemployment levels. I shall be challenging the Welsh Assembly Government on Montgomeryshire’s poor transport infrastructure.

“The Welsh Assembly Government has done little for Montgomeryshire and they need to be challenged on their priorities.”
