We are delighted to announce, that following a packed selection meeting at the Werter Road Community Church on Wednesday 30th October, Putney Conservatives voted overwhelmingly for Will Sweet to spearhead our drive to retain the parliamentary seat following Justine Greening's recent retirement from Parliament.
Will lives in Wandsworth, where he grew up, got his first job and met his partner. After university, he worked as an adviser to shops and businesses. For the last six years he worked for the Foreign Office. As a Wandsworth Councillor, he is the Cabinet Member for Education and Children’s Services and used to be Planning Chairman. He has spent his time at the Council delivering extra funding for schools and regeneration in Putney, Southfields and Roehampton and protecting us from bad development. He spends his spare time running and cycling and with his family and friends.
On his selection he said:
“It means so much to me to be given this chance to represent our home. Wandsworth is where I grew up, got my first job and still live today. I am delighted to have been chosen by the local membership to stand at the next General Election for Putney, a place I love so much. Putney, Southfields and Roehampton need an MP who will champion them in a way that leaves no one behind. As a Wandsworth Councillor, I have spent the last 5 years delivering extra funding for schools and regeneration in Putney and protecting us from bad development. I am looking forward to using my experience working for the Foreign Office to ensure that Brexit works for the people of Putney. I want to solve our transport issues, rejuvenate our high streets and protect the environment. I have seen amazing changes in Putney, Southfields and Roehampton in the last 30 years but I think the future can be even brighter.”
