The Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council leader, Simon Tagg, has been chosen as the Conservative candidate for Newcastle in the upcoming General Election. 

The Staffordshire Conservative Association announced this decision yesterday (6 June). 

This comes after the former constituency MP Aaron Bell announced he will not be standing in the election. Bell was elected in 2019.

Simon Tagg stated: “I’ll fight for every vote and will work hard to support local people and businesses here in our community.”

He’ll stand against the Green Party’s Jennifer Leigh Hibell, Labour’s Adam Jogee, and Reform UK’s Neill Walker.

The Liberal Democrats are yet to choose a candidate for Newcastle. 

Nominations close today (7 June).
