Boston and Skegness Conservative Candidate Matt Warman has announced the next wave of dates in a constituency-wide public meetings programme.
“I began this programme last year because I want to meet as many voters across the constituency as possible and hear their views,” said Matt. “These are open forums where we’ve spoken about everything from hunting to Europe and from Trident to Israel. No other party is brave enough or energetic enough to get out there in this way across Boston and Skegness. Just as it is on the doorstep, feedback has been hugely positive.”
,p>Matt continued: “I want to genuinely represent the people of Boston and Skegness in Westminster and I know there’s a real need to listen to the wide range of views held across the constituency. It’s a chance to discuss in greater depth the issues people have raised with me as I’ve been campaigning over the last few weeks in the constituency.”
The latest confirmed dates and venues are:
Thursday 5th February The White Hart, Main Road, Sibsey
Thursday 19th February The Bricklayers Arms, Wainfleet Road, Old Leake
Thursday 26th February The Woolpack Hotel, High Street, Wainfleet
Thursday 5th March The Bell Hotel, High Street, Burgh le Marsh
Thursday 12th March The Napoleon, Fishtoft Road, Boston
All are 5.30pm-6.30/7.00pm.
Each event is nominally themed, but guests can raise any issue they wish. Local areas will receive leaflets in the run-up to each meeting.
Further dates and venues for the meetings will be announced in due course, with the programme set to carry on in the run up to the election alongside the formal, cross-party hustings anticipated closer to the election date, as well as Matt’s programme of Facebook and Twitter Q&As around the same time.
Matt, whose family lives near Holbeach and is currently head of technology at the Daily Telegraph, added: “Millions around Britain feel disconnected from politics; these are the kind of public meetings, open to all, that I want to hold now and that I would continue to hold regularly as the Conservative MP for Boston and Skegness: listening to constituents is crucial if Westminster is to build a better Britain. I hope the vast majority of the residents of the seat will be within easy distance of at least one session: there’s no reason not to come. Whether it’s on tax, the National Health Service, immigration or Europe, I believe the Conservative Party is the only party that can deliver the reforms we urgently need in our country and I will be making that case at every opportunity.”
