Fresh from being selected last weekend as the new Conservative parliamentary candidate for North East Derbyshire, Lee Rowley hit the ground running today by launching his campaign in Wingerworth.
Knocking on over a hundred doors across the village, Lee spoke with dozens of local residents to introduce himself, check on the local area and discuss the upcoming County council elections in May.
"It was great to meet so many local residents this morning," said Lee. "Lots of people said how nice it was to actually see someone getting stuck in and knocking on doors. This is exactly the kind of campaign we want - concentrating on improving the lives of local residents and staying in touch as much as possible."
