The membership of the East Lewisham Conservative Association takes great pleasure in announcing that we have selected Cllr Peter Fortune as our candidate to challenge Labour’s Heidi Alexander in the 2015 General Election.
Peter currently serves on Bromley Council as a ward Councillor for Hayes and Coney Hall, where he also chairs the council's Health and Wellbeing board. He was selected as our Constituency campaigner for the 2014 combined elections where he worked very closely with all of our ward campaign teams.
After his selection Peter pledged to give health and housing top priority saying, "I will campaign to ensure that the people of Lewisham start to see the improvements in housing, education and health that are being seen elsewhere across the country." He went on to say "It is an honour and a great responsibility to have been selected by the members of the East Lewisham Conservative Association. It goes without saying that I relish the challenge this involves and I’m grateful for the faith you have shown in selecting me to stand as your Parliamentary candidate"
