Andrew Gwynne MP has been unanimously re-selected by members in the Denton and Reddish Constituency Labour Party to fight the seat again for Labour at the 2015 General Election.
Gwynne, who was first selected as Parliamentary Candidate in 2004, in advance of the 2005 General Election, and who was elected at the 2005 and 2010 General Elections, was endorsed by every local Labour Party Branch and local Forum, and all the affiliated organisations attached to Denton and Reddish CLP in a 20 day process of consultation.
Andrew Gwynne MP said:
“I am delighted to have been chosen again to fight the Denton and Reddish seat in 2015. This is much more than a job to me. It genuinely is a privilege to represent in Parliament the area where I’ve always lived, grown up and where I’m now bringing my own family up.
“I know just how much this Tory-led coalition government are hammering the communities of Audenshaw, Denton, Dukinfield, Reddish and the Heatons, and how – more than ever – many people round here need a government that’s going to be on their side.
“I won’t rest between now and May 2015 to make the case that we need a government that is determined to get Britain working again; one that believes in public services; one that will stand up for our NHS and one that will put areas like Denton and Reddish first. It’s going to be a long hard slog, but I believe we can rid ourselves of this discredited Tory-led coalition and secure the One Nation Labour Government we so desperately need.”
