DARLINGTON MP Jenny Chapman has been chosen to fight the seat again for Labour at the 2015 General Election.
Mrs Chapman, who was first selected as the party’s Parliamentary Candidate for Darlington in 2010, was endorsed by local Labour Party branches and affiliated organisations attached to Darlington CLP during a 20-day consultation period.
She was elected to represent Darlington in the House of Commons in the 2010 General Election.
Mrs Chapman said: “I am delighted to have been chosen again to fight the Darlington seat in 2015. This is much more than a job to me. It genuinely is a privilege to represent in Parliament the area where I’ve always lived.
“I know just how much this Tory-led coalition government are hammering the communities across our town, and how – more than ever – many people round here need a government that’s going to be on their side.
“I won’t rest between now and May 2015 to make the case that we need a government that is determined to get Britain working again; one that believes in public services; one that will stand up for our NHS and one that will put areas like Darlington first.”
David Lyonette, chairman of Darlington Labour Party, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Jenny received such overwhelming support from local members.
“Campaigning to keep the Mowden Hall jobs in Darlington; working to help residents who are struggling in the current economic climate; already in her first term Jenny has proved to be a strong voice for Darlington.”
