Last night saw the latest Conservative candidate selected for next year's Welsh Assembly elections. At an open primary meeting attended by nearly 300 people, Russell George was chosen to contest Montgomeryshire - where the equivalent Westminster seat was gained at the general election from the Lib Dems by Glyn Davies for the Conservatives.
Russell has been a member of Powys County Council since 2008 and represents a ward in Newtown (in the Montgomeryshire constituency) where he has lived all his life. He also runs a small business in the town.
