Tories name woman who almost caused election shock as their chairman


THE woman who almost ousted Labour in Warrington North in the December General Election has been appointed chairman of Warrington Conservatives
Wendy Maisey – who was awarded the OBE in the New Year Honours List – has succeeded long-serving Paul Campbell.
She was appointed at the annual meeting of Warrington Conservative Federation – which governs both Warrington South and Warrington North.
She said: “To be able to announce my appointment on International Women’s day is a bonus. I’m delighted to be elected as Warrington Conservatives’ first woman chair.   As a party we don’t have all women shortlists – we believe in the best person for the job. A unanimous vote from our membership has given me the mandate to take Warrington Conservative Federation forward, building on the incredible work done over the past few years by Paul Campbell, our outgoing chairman.”
Mr Campbell said: “Wendy is just what the Federation needs to take it forward and build on our success at the Polls in the December ’19 General Election. She brings invaluable business experience, innovative ideas and has a passion to get things done.”
Mrs Maisey was the Conservative Party Parliamentary candidate for Warrington North in the General Election and almost pulled of what would have been one of the biggest shocks of the night.  She took Warrington North from a safe Labour seat of almost 10,000 majority down to a marginal seat, coming only 1,509 votes behind Labour.
She and her husband, David, who have run Warrington-based ICC Solutions Ltd for more than 20 years – were both awarded the OBE in recognition of their contribution to international trade and the British economy.
Warrington Conservative Association became a federation last year and now governs both Warrington North and South Conservatives with one executive board.
