Labour MP Pat Glass won the election here in 2010, and is up for re-election again this month.
Let’s take a look at all of the candidates for North West Durham, we asked each candidate for a quote and here they are:
Owen Temple, Liberal Democrats
“Locally I continue the fight to break one party domination, Labour Party domination. Nationally I’m determined to protect the progress Britain has made since 2010 fromeither the harshness of a right wing Tory Government, or the spendthrift destructiveness of Labour. Only the Liberal Democrats have the head to balance the books, and the heart to protect the most vulnerable.”
Charlotte Haitham Taylor, Conservatives
Mark Shilcock, The Green Party
I believe that by standing for the Green Party I am offering local residents a real choice in the forthcoming election. Many people want to see real change. If elected I will put all my energy into ensuring that North West Durham is represented with passion and commitment. I urge people to vote positively for what they believe in.
Pat Glass, Labour
Bruce Reid, UK Independence Party (UKIP)
