Mark Menzies: ‘A vote for anyone else could jeopardise our country’s future’


FYLDE Conservative Parliamentary Candidate Mark Menzies has urged his supporters to get out to vote on Thursday as the 2015 General Election campaign winds up.

During the campaign period, Mr Menzies has made 50 ward visits, knocking on thousands of doors in the process. He has officially opened a new pub on Heyhouses Lane, St Annes, and a residential home on the Promenade. He was invited to launch the Kirkham Grammar School Careers Fair and attended two candidates’ debates at St Annes United Reformed Church and Lytham St Annes Technology and Performing Arts College.


He has also met with the farming community to discuss a range of rural issues, visited new housing developments and spoken to traders at markets in Lytham and St Annes and in high street shops across Fylde.

But while he has walked many miles and spoken to a large number of Fylde residents, Mr Menzies said it was vital people now head to the polling station on Thursday to ensure he can continue representing Fylde in Parliament and ensure the country remains on a stable footing.

He added: “Having visited almost every street in Fylde during the campaign, I have been gratified by the huge levels of support I have received to go on with my work in Fylde.

“In the last five years, I have secured funding for new roads and infrastructure in Fylde, supported rural communities with flooding issues and concerns over shale gas exploration, backed BAE Systems to secure new contracts and protect thousands of local jobs, fought for bus and train services and ensured a working runway remains at Blackpool Airport for commercial flights to return in the future.


“However, those are just a small number of the thousands of issues I have helped local residents and businesses with over the last five years and I was pleased that so many people recognised the work I have done.

“Nationally, this could be the most important election in generations if we are to protect our country from a Labour government which threatens to once again cripple our economy.

“You need to have a strong economy to continue to invest in the NHS, pensions and infrastructure as the current Government has done for the last five years, despite the financial chaos we were left with.

“If people want security, stability and to stay on the path to recovery with David Cameron as Prime Minister – then they need to vote Conservative on May 7, a vote for anyone else could jeopardise our country’s future.”
