Mebyon Kernow’s John Rowe is the real alternative to the Conservative Party in Camborne North by-election.
Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall has selected John Rowe to stand in the by-election to Camborne Town Council (for North Ward) to be held on Thursday 18th November) caused by the resignation of Liberal Democrat Councillor Hayley Waller.
John is a member of the Camborne branch of Mebyon Kernow and has been actively involved in many local campaigns. He studied Chemical Engineering at Bath University before returning home to complete a degree in Environmental Resource Management. A keen volunteer, John has assisted Oxfam, British Trust of Conservation Volunteers, disability awareness fairs and the Cornwall Scrapstore – a recycling centre in Pool that reuses materials from local industry.
John says that Mebyon Kernow – the Party for Cornwall are the obvious alternative to the Conservatives in this area. He is campaigning to protect important public services, to support initiatives to create well-paid jobs for local people, and he will oppose the savage and damaging cuts of the Coalition Government.
The by-election comes at a time when MK is doing well in the Redruth and Camborne Constituency. Independent Cornwall Councillor Neil Plummer from Stithians recently joined the MK group at Cornwall Council, while in June Stephen Richardson won a seat for the Party on Illogan Parish Council. Stephen polled over 70% of the vote – defeating the Labour Party.
And in the recent by-election in Camborne West, MK candidate Paul Jenkin only missed out by 27 votes to the Conservative candidate, while polling more votes than Labour and the Lib Dems combined.
Do get out to vote, and consider supporting John Rowe.
