Joe Egerton

Canterbury City South

Joe Egerton won the nomination as the Conservative Candidate for Canterbury City South in an online primary with 64% of the vote which was open to all residents aged 18 or above living within the division, which includes all of the city council ward of Barton and parts of Westgate and Wincheap.

Volunteers from Canterbury Conservatives delivered thousands of leaflets inviting residents to get involved; a change from the usual system where candidates are chosen at meetings that are only open to members of the Party.

Joe says "I will turn 65 in April 2017 and have no ambition other than to use my talents and experience to achieve change for the better over a four year term as county councillor."
