After the sudden resignation of Wiltshire Councillor Helena McKeown for the Salisbury St Edmund and Milford Division, Salisbury Conservatives have chosen popular City Councillor, Atiqul Hoque to stand for the Conservatives.
“I am deeply honoured to be chosen to stand in an area of Salisbury where I first moved to 20 years ago.” said Cllr Hoque. “I started my first business here, Chutney’s in Estcourt Road and know many local people.
If I am elected I will be so happy to give something back to the community that welcomed me to Salisbury all those years ago.”
Salisbury Conservative Association Chairman, John Brady, said “Our selection committee was faced with a real headache to choose between Cllr Matthew Dean and Atiqul; both outstanding City councillors. It was a tough decision to make however, Matt is fully supportive of Atiqul and will be out with him all through the election campaign.”
