On September 19th Torridge & West Devon Conservatives re-adopted the Rt Hon Geoffrey Cox QC as Parliamentary candidate for the constituency.
Geoffrey Cox commented that “I am delighted to have been reselected by local Conservatives to stand again for an area which is my home and where I have lived with my family and brought up my children for twenty years. It is a profound privilege to have represented Torridge and West Devon for the past 14 ½ years, and I am deeply grateful for the kindness and strong support that so many thousands of local people have given me in that time.
"I am determined to go on serving and protecting our communities and to support a new Conservative Government that is committed to an economic plan that enables us to level up Devon’s schools’ funding by a record amount so that every Devon schoolchild will benefit from the advantages enjoyed in many other parts of the country, build new hospitals in Barnstaple and Derriford and invest in better broadband connectivity and new rail and road links to serve our rural market towns and villages. That is why we must get Brexit done now to move on to these urgent priorities.”
