Tories choose chair of Kensington Conservatives to stand in Môn
The Conservatives have chosen the Chair of Kensington, Chelsea and Fulham Conservatives to stand in the Ynys Môn constituency.
Virginia Ann Crosbie is a maths teacher has lived in West Sussex for 10 years with her husband and three children. Her Grandfather was from Merthyr Tydfil, and her father from Monmouth.
She has previously stood in the Rhondda constituency, winning 10% of the vote in 2017 which she describes on her website as an “exceptional result in a challenging election”.
The Conservative candidate was chosen at the last moment after Chris Davies pulled out when other Welsh Tories criticised his selection.
Mr Davies lost a by-election in Brecon and Radnorshire triggered by a recall petition earlier this year.
He admitted two charges of a false expenses claim in March at Westminster Magistrates’ Court after trying to split the cost of £700 worth of pictures between two office budgets by creating fake invoices, when he could have claimed the amount by other means.
The other candidates in the seat are Aled ap Dafydd for Plaid Cymru, Mary Roberts for the Labour Party, and Helen Jenner for the Brexit Party.
