A marathon and a sprint

Matt Hartley marathon

On Tuesday I was deeply honoured to be selected by local party members as the Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Eltham in the General Election on June 8th.

The selection meeting came two days after I ran my first London Marathon – an interesting experience on day two of my recovery from 5 hours 53 minutes of running!

With just 41 days to go, this General Election, of course, isn’t a marathon – but a sprint.  I look forward to making my case to residents in the weeks ahead.

(On a personal note I would also like to thank residents, friends and colleagues for their support in the Marathon and help in raising funds for The Archway Project – and also the Mayor and my fellow councillors of all parties for their support and encouragement)
