It was pleasing to see we have had to many high quality applications to become the Conservative PPC for Cambridge.
A real good mix of locals, academics, lawyers and business owners. Great to see an even split of male and female applicants and a mix of people from our multicultural society.
We have got this mass of applications down to a long list of very exciting possibilities.
On Sunday the Executive Council select, from our long list, a short list of candidates. We will carry out a series of interviews to better understand the candidates and how they would represent all the people of Cambridge.
Next Friday the short list will be interviewed by the whole Cambridge Conservative Association and a final choice will be made.
