News of a boost to the campaign this week of the Conservative candidate for Great Yarmouth, Brandon Lewis.
His Green opponent, Ian Holman (left in the picture), has stepped down and given his backing to Brandon (right), explaining:
“Whilst my political bias is a little left of the line I am happy to push aside party politics and declare my intention to give Brandon Lewis my personal vote at the forthcoming General Election. I have met Brandon and discussed local and national issues with him. In my view he has the drive, enthusiasm and commitment to become a great representative for Great Yarmouth. I would encourage voters of all political persuasions to give serious consideration to supporting him on polling day.”
Brandon Lewis welcomed his former opponent's support:
“It is an honour to have the support of Ian Holman. I know the huge importance he places on renewable energy and am keen for there to be more investment in this industry especially in Great Yarmouth. With the announcement this week on Wind Farms I have written to the companies involved already to invite them to come and see what we have to offer in Great Yarmouth’, especially with our experience of Scroby sands wind farm. I am very grateful to Ian for his support for me personally as a prospective MP for Great Yarmouth.”
