Lee Rowley re-selected as Conservative candidate for North East Derbyshire

Lee Rowley, 36, has tonight been selected as the Conservative candidate for North East Derbyshire at the 2017 General Election.

He contested the constituency at the last General Election, two years ago, achieving an increase of just under 4% in the Conservative vote.

Lee was born at the old Scarsdale Hospital in Chesterfield, the son of a milkman, and grew up in Hasland.

Starting his career assisting his father's small business, Lee rose to become a manager in well-known companies and has worked across the country over the past few years.  He currently commutes daily from Chesterfield to Manchester.

He has also been a councillor and a trustee for an environmental charity.

Lee said: "It is a fantastic honour to contest North East Derbyshire once again and I thank local Conservative members for putting their faith in me.

"I know our community well, as someone who was born, educated and who has campaigned here for years, and I will be a strong voice for it in Westminster.

“I've worked hard for residents for years, including helping to fight poor planning decisions and lobbying the Government over the effects of HS2.

"This election in North East Derbyshire is also a clear choice between the strong and stable leadership of Theresa May and the chaos of Jeremy Corbyn propped up the SNP and others.

"Only by voting Conservative on June 8th can North East Derbyshire residents secure the best Brexit deal with me as their Member of Parliament working closely with the Prime Minister."
