Bob Russell to stand for re-election in 2015
1:14pm Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
Colchester’s MP Sir Bob Russell has announced he will stand for election again in 2015.
The announcement was made today after he was unanimously re-selected in a secret ballot of members of the Colchester Liberal Democrats.
He said that he wanted to quash rumours that he would be standing down.
Sir Bob, who is 67, was first elected in 1997 and has been re-elected three times.
At the last election he beat the Conservative candidate by nearly 7,000 votes.
