Amanda Milling has been selected in Cannock Chase after sitting MP Aiden Burley announce he would be stepping down after one term.
While she has served as a councillor for five years in Lancashire, Amanda’s roots are in Staffordshire – she grew up in Burton-upon-Trent, and her father worked for many years in Cannock.
“I am honoured to have been selected for Cannock Chase and it is great to be returning to Staffordshire as a prospective MP.
“I’ll be living in the constituency to be as accessible as possible to residents, so they can easily come and see me for help and advice. It’s really important that I work hard with both councillors and local people to really tackle the issues that matter.
“As a businesswoman, I understand the challenges that firms face. Creating jobs is essential to create a strong future for Cannock Chase, so I’ll work hard to support local companies to create new roles for hard-working people in the area.”
Burley was elected with a majority of 3,195 in 2010 - we wish Cllr Milling the best in securing the seat for a second Conservative term, albeit with a new MP.
