Tonight the Conservative Party plus other more independently minded Bedfordians will select the Conservative candidate for the Mayoral Elections.
The candidates are:
Nicky Attenborough, Leader of the Bedford Borough Conservative Councillors
Tom Wootton, Conservative Borough Councillor
Parvez Akhtar, Chair of the Queens Park Parish Council
Jason Reddy, a Putnoe GP and Deputy Medical Director of the NHS Bedfordshire PCT
SMS wonders what each of them will say about the schools’ debate. Some of us will be there to listen with interest, especially as many traditionally Conservative votes are in wards with very good middle schools.
