The Hereford and South Herefordshire Conservative Association announced today that Jesse Norman has been readopted as the party's candidate for the next General Election.

Mr Norman was elected as Member of Parliament for Hereford and South Herefordshire in 2010. He retained his seat in 2015 and 2017, latterly with a majority of 15,013 and 53% of the vote. He has also served as a Minister since 2016, and is presently Financial Secretary
to the Treasury.

Commenting on the news, Jesse Norman said:

"I am honoured and delighted to have been readopted as a candidate. Since 2010 it has been a privilege to serve the people of Hereford and South Herefordshire.

"Working together, we have had some real successes, including winning £23M for the new university project, £5M for local roads, support from Government to build the new Medical Centre and replace the hutted wards at the Hospital, and most recently a fantastic £20-£25M from the new Towns Fund.

"But there is so much more to do, and I continue to work with undiminished energy and warmth on behalf of all my constituents."

Association Chairman, Stephen Machin, said: “Jesse has a reputation for being one of the best constituency MPs in Parliament, and we are extremely fortunate to have him making the case for Herefordshire in Parliament. All the more effectively since he has been a minister.”

“As Chairman I rely on Jesse’s insights and calmness, despite everything going on around us and I know that he has the best interests of the Constituency and the Country at heart. He deserves our total support.”
