Wrexham MP Ian Lucas has today said he will be ‘giving the campaign trail’ his all ahead of the upcoming General Election and that he would like to continue in his role.
The incumbent MP Ian Lucas has previously indicated he would be re-standing in the General Election, and today used a recent Rhosddu Play Day as an example as to why he would like to continue representing Wrexham.
Although not a huge surprise, and after stating on the day the election was called he would ‘fight for Wrexham’ today saw the first more formal declaration of intent to stand.
Mr Lucas wrote today: “I will always remember where I was when I heard there was to be a 2017 General Election. I was in Rhosddu Park in Wrexham on a beautiful sunny morning, enjoying the privilege of being the Member of Parliament for the town.
“The Rhosddu community had come together, as it has done a number of times in the last year, to organise a Play Day. Faith groups were there, along with sports clubs, the police, ice cream vans and local shops and lots and lots of people – from toddlers to senior citizens.”
He added: “This part of town has had its share of problems in the last year but this was a special day and it was a treat to be there.
“This is a job I love and I want to continue to do it. Quite rightly, that will be up to the people of Wrexham on June 8th and I will be giving the campaign my all between now and then. I hope to see you on the Labour Campaign trail.”
