In Bradley’s words:
“I am humbled to have been selected as the Conservative’s prospective parliamentary candidate in the Bromsgrove constituency, in the county we call home. To follow in the footsteps of Sajid Javid is an immense privilege.
Born and raised here in Worcestershire, the prosperity and well-being of Bromsgrove are at the heart of my dedication. I vow to work tirelessly to deliver for the town centre and every village and community.
I am committed to attracting private investment and supporting local entrepreneurs and councillors as we revitalise our high streets creating vibrant communities that thrive and flourish.
Bromsgrove's potential goes beyond its town centre. As the Conservative’s prospective parliamentary candidate, I will focus on delivering economic prosperity throughout the entire constituency, ensuring every community receives the attention and support it deserves.
Addressing pressing concerns like traffic congestion and air pollution is a top priority. If elected, I will work tirelessly to improve transport infrastructure and implement pragmatic solutions, making our area more accessible and environmentally sustainable.
With a significant rural hinterland, I will stand up for farmers and rural communities so that we all have a bright future.
Together, we'll tackle challenges head-on, revitalising our town centres, delivering beautiful housing that doesn’t destroy the environment, and implementing practical traffic solutions, leaving no stone unturned in our pursuit of progress.
My mission is to unite us for a better tomorrow, where everyone benefits in a thriving constituency that embraces both its heritage and progress.
As your next parliamentary candidate, I will be a strong champion for Bromsgrove, amplifying your voice in Westminster and standing up for residents, their prosperity and our environment."
