Councillor Matthew Brown shortlisted for parliamentary seat candidacy
A CLEETHORPES councillor has narrowly missed out on becoming the Labour party’s candidate for a southern parliamentary seat.
Councillor Matthew Brown (Lab, Croft Baker) made the party’s shortlist to fight the safe Conservative seat of Hartsmere in Hertfordshire in the next general election.
But following a vote by Labour’s Hartsmere constituency party he was beaten into second place by local councillor Richard Butler.
After impressing party members in Hertfordshire, Councillor Brown has set his sights on standing for a seat closer to home.

He said: “It is the first time I have applied for a parliamentary seat and I was extremely honoured to be shortlisted. I think they have chosen the right candidate for them. Obviously I would love a crack at Cleethorpes, but I appreciate there will be more experienced candidates putting themselves forward.”
