General Election 2019: Meet the Bolton North East candidates

The Bolton North East seat is held by veteran Labour MP Sir David Crausby and he is hoping to be re-elected for the seventh time in December.

Back in 2017 the Conservatives targeted the seat as a potential gain from Labour and Theresa May made it her first place to visit on her campaign trail.

However, Labour held it comfortably despite the constituency voting 58% in favour of leaving the EU in 2016.

David Crausby – Labour Party

Mr Crausby has been the MP for the area since 1997. He is hoping to gain more investments for schools in Bolton as well as “championing a green industrial revolution to protect our planet for future generations.”


Warren Fox – Liberal Democrats

Mr Fox has been a part of initiatives within the local area including the ‘Bolton Road Safety Group’ and the ‘Friends of Horrocks Fold’. He describes himself as the “only true remain candidate” in Bolton North East.


Trevor Jones – Brexit Party

Mr Jones will be standing on a platform of delivering Brexit. The party wants to scrap the plans of HS2 and will hope to cut the foreign budget in half if they were to come into power on Thursday December 12.


Mark Logan – Conservative Party

Mr Logan will be hoping to close the 4,000 vote gap on Labour from 2017 in this General Election. He will be hoping to be elected so that he can support Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal.

Mrs Spencer previously worked in the NHS before becoming a Green Party candidate. She believes that “there is a better way to live than in a world of fear and exclusion”.
