  • My latest press release…

    Independent Parliamentary Candidate for East Devon Claire Wright is to formally launch her election manifesto at The Institute, Yonder St, Ottery St Mary, EX11 1HH on Wednesday 13th November from 7.30 – 9pm.

    This is a public event open to all, including media.

    The venue is in the middle of town, next door to the Rusty Pig. Disabled access is at the side of the building. It is best to park in Sainsbury’s car park.

    The General Election 2019 manifesto is now live on the website  – to view it click here.

    After a campaign announcement in Exmouth with BBC reporter and former independent MP Martin Bell, 80,0000 of the manifestos are currently winging their way across the constituency, thanks to hundreds of generous spirited volunteers.

    The county councillor has pledged to campaign for the issues her constituents tell her are important to them.

    My manifesto is based on the issues the people of East Devon have told me matter most,” said Wright.

    “The past few years have demonstrated that the party system is broken. It is time for change. As an Independent, I would have exactly the same rights as other MPs and would work cross-party to achieve my manifesto pledges.

    “I am different. I have no party whip to tell me how to vote. I am free to speak and free to act. And free to fight for the issues that the people of East Devon care about the most.

    “This election is very unpredictable and presents a rare opportunity for residents to elect an MP who truly cares and puts them first.”
