The Hull Conservative and Unionists have today (Thursday 5th April 2018) completed the submission of their nomination papers for the Hull City Council elections, with a full slate of 57 candidates. The Conservative Group Leader, Councillor John Fareham, said: “I am proud to be a part of such a hard working and talented team, all of us willing to stand up for residents and not allow Labour to take Hull’s citizens for granted. We have an incredibly diverse team from many professions and all walks of life, all with valuable experiences that they can bring to the role of being a Councillor. I look forward to working with them further over the coming weeks, months, and years!”

Councillor John Abbott, the Hull North and East Conservatives Secretary, said “With our full, strong slate of candidates, we are proving we are the true opposition in this city – not the Lib Dems! In last year’s General Election, we really were the only mass opposition across the city, receiving over 30,000 votes compared to just a shocking 5,300 for the Lib Dems. How the Lib Dems can claim to be the main opposition is laughable – across the city if you tot up the votes, they only came fourth in 2017, even behind UKIP!”

Hull Conservative Campaign Co-Ordinator and Kingswood Candidate, Dehenna Davison, said: “Our 57 candidates represent our most diverse slate ever. We lead from the front with our candidates, demonstrating that whoever you are, wherever you come from, whatever your faith, there will always be a home for you in the Conservative Party. We hope Hull residents across the city will put their faith in us and vote Conservative on the 3rd May.”
