Candidate Selection Night

This evening the people of Salford will be able to select an alternative parliamentary candidate to challenge Hazel Blears at the next General Election, backed by this campaign.

Since November we have called on ordinary, local people to come forward and put their names on the list. We’ve had quite a lot of interest, but as you can understand running for parliament in one of the most closely contended seats in the country is no easy task.


Candidates: Alec McFadden (left) , Rachel Cavendish (middle), David Henry (right)

We are pleased to announce Alec McFadden, Rachel Cavendish and David Henry will be speaking at a public meeting this evening – putting the voices of the people of Salford & Eccles back on the agenda.

The meeting will start at 7pm, Thursday 4th Jan 2010 at the Old Pint Pot Pub, off Salford Crescent.
