Gloucester CLP select their PPC

20th April, 2013 1:47 pm

Gloucester Labour Party met today to select their candidate for 2015. Congratulations to the winning candidate, Sophy Gardner, and commiserations to the other shortlisted candidates. Here’s a brief biography for Sophy:

Sophy Gardner is a former RAF Wing Commander, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. She was also in charge of RAF transport and refuelling assets during the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Afghanistan operations 2001-2, for which she was awarded the MBE. She’s an advocate for Labour Friends of the Forces, and runs her own communications strategy consultancy. Gardner was previously shortlisted for the Feltham and Heston and Rotherham selections.

It is worth noting that Gardner was selected from an Open Shortlist – breaking the recent bad run for female candidates in such selections.
