Burton-on-Trent born businesswoman Amanda Milling has been appointed as the parliamentary prospective candidate for Cannock Chase – and has committed to support local firms and help create jobs.
Born and bred in Staffordshire, Amanda (39) has built a successful career as a company director for a market research business.
She has been involved in grassroots politics from a young age, leafleting for the Conservative Party when she was a teenager. More recently, she has served as a borough councillor as well as a campaign organiser for several local and general elections.
Amanda said: “I am honoured to have been selected for Cannock Chase and it is great to be returning to Staffordshire as a prospective MP.
“I’ll be living in the constituency to be as accessible as possible to residents, so they can easily come and see me for help and advice. It’s really important that I work hard with both councilors and local people to really tackle the issues that matter.
“As a businesswoman, I understand the challenges that firms face. Creating jobs is essential to create a strong future for Cannock Chase, so I’ll work hard to support local companies to create new roles for hard-working people in the area.”
