The Labour Party has chosen its candidate to fight for the Aylesbury constituency parliamentary seat in the 2015 general election.
Aylesbury Constituency Labour Party members selection William Cass via a secret ballot after a hustings debate with his only rival Jonny Roberts.
He is likely to take on current Conservative MP David Lidington, as well as candidates from the Lib Dems, UKIP and Green parties.
Mr Cass, 29, said: “Since 2010 the rich have got richer, the poor poorer, and the planet burns.
“Now is the time to stand or vote for Labour. Being prospective parliamentary candidate for Labour is a great honour and responsibility and one that I am determined to use to raise the issues that matter in Aylesbury and help bring to power a Labour government in 2015.”
During his pitch to members he said the ‘values which a caring society established are under assault by a coalition government determined to eliminate its last vestiges in favour of a Dickensian free-for-all’.
He added that he wanted to ‘stand for Labour because I believe that access to education is at the heart of a more equal society’.
Mike Padmore, chairman of Aylesbury Labour Party, said: “The vitality and energy of Aylesbury Labour party is reflected in a close fought contest between two young and talented candidates, both totally committed to the Aylesbury area.
“Will Cass’s approach reflects the values of honest, hardworking people; values that the Labour movement has at its core.
“He will lead a vigorous campaign to expose the complacent but well-expensed record of David Lidington, and the lack lustre performance of other local parties, who equally have little to show for the electorate’s faith in them.”
