A former chairman of East Cambridgeshire District Council is aiming for a comeback in May’s local council’s elections.
Peter Cresswell, who lives in Newmarket and who represented the Cheveley ward from 2003 until 2011, when he stood down to take a break from local politics, has been selected by the Conservatives to fight the seat again.
As well as being is a former chairman of the council, he also chaired its community services committee.
Also selected to contest the Cheveley ward is Mathew Shuter currently county councillor for the Wood Ditton division on Cambridgeshire County Council, where he has served since 2005.
He is also currently business champion for Cambridgeshire.
They will be teaming up with Lucy Frazer, who will be the Conservative Party Parliamentary candidate in the General Election and hoping to take over from current MP Sir Jim Paice who is retiring. The current Conservative councillors for the Cheveley ward Tom Kerby and Sue Willows are both standing down.
