Mark Prisk to seek re-election

Mark Prisk MP has announced that he will be seeking re-election on May 7th, as the Conservative candidate for the Hertford & Stortford constituency.

 

Over recent years Mark has worked hard to help people in need and has fought for the local community. He’s helped save Hertford Post Office; is fighting for a fair deal for commuters; and has secured £4m to upgrade the local broadband service. He is also working with GPs and patient groups to improve local GP services in each of the towns in East Herts.

 

This work builds on his record as an effective champion for the local community, in helping carers, backing small firms and supporting charities such as the Isabel Hospice, Grove Cottage in Bishop’s Stortford and St Elizabeth’s Centre, in Much Hadham.

 

Mark also believes only a strong economy can afford the public services we need, including the NHS. He said “Over the last five years, Conservatives have helped turn the economy around. Over the next Parliament, we need to finish that job”.

 

Speaking about the election in Hertford & Stortford, he said “I’m really looking forward to the campaign. I have a record of action in helping people, of being an effective representative for everyone across the constituency. Over the next few weeks I want to set out what more I plan to do in the coming Parliament, to help people, young and old, in towns and in our villages.”
