Concerned about Brexit? Fed up that we’re not out yet or just confused?
Come along to the Newhaven Chamber breakfast and meet Maria Caulfield on Wednesday 20th November to put your questions to the parliamentary candidate for the Conservatives.
Maria decided that she would put herself forward to become the Conservative candidate for the Lewes constituency ahead of the 2015 General Election. Once selected, Maria campaigned rigorously on a wide-range of issues, many of which had been ongoing and remained un-resolved during Liberal Democrat Norman Baker’s 18 year tenure as the Lewes MP.
On 5th May 2015, Maria’s hard work was rewarded, as she swept away the Liberal Democrat MP’s majority of 7,647, and gained herself a majority of 1,083. Upon receiving the result, Maria said “I would like to thank the Conservative Party for choosing a working class nurse like myself for this seat because very often you hear about politicians not being from the real world and I certainly am.”
Work within the constituency started immediately, as the new Conservative Member of Parliament for Lewes started to take to task the mounting concerns – both local and national – facing her constituents.
Maria Caulfield was re-elected as the Member of Parliament for Lewes on 8th June 2017 with 26,820 votes, a significantly increased majority of 5,508. In the Government reshuffle on 8th January 2018 Maria was appointed Vice Chair for Women of the Conservative Party.
