A FORMER youth MP has been chosen as Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Stone for next year’s general election.
Sam Hale, 21, was selected by the Stone branch of the Labour party and will be aiming to unseat Stone Tory MP Bill Cash.
Sam, who lives in Cheadle, was a member of the UK Youth Parliament and was awarded the Princess Diana Memorial ward his service to the community.
He said: “I’m delighted that the members of Stone Labour Party have put their trust in me to fight the next General Election. I look forward to working with local residents from all across the constituency to tackle the cuts to local services we are seeing.
“I have no doubt that this is going to be a tough fight, but we are building a solid team of local supporters and volunteers throughout the constituency.”
The Stone constituency is the largest in Staffordshire, covering Cheadle, Tean and Forsbrook in the Staffordshire Moorlands, Stone, Eccleshall, Gnosall and Blythe Bridge in the Stafford Borough, and Madeley and Loggerheads in the Newcastle-under-Lyme borough.
