Since 2016 Cameron Stokell, 19, has been involved in the youth movement of the Conservative Party and in 2017 took a very strong interest in helping with the General Election.
Since then, Cameron has been very proactive in supporting local elections and by-elections in the town and in the last by election for Rural West was co-Campaign Manager along with Ray Martin-Wells supporting the delivery of a wider online strategy and canvassing the area.
His interests include the sport of field hockey, which he plays at university and has been apart of the England Single System as well as studying Politics at Sheffield Hallam University where he is going in to his first year. This will not detract from his ability to serve as a Councillor as he is very politically active and has very good ideas to support Hartlepool. A mature and well rounded individual who has a lot of fantastic attributes that will stand him in good stead for his planned career in politics.
Due to the recent calling of Hart by-election in response to former Cllr Paul Beck standing down, Ray Martin-Wells nominated Cameron Stokell as the council candidate and he was unanimously accepted as such by the HCA Executive.
We wish Cameron every success in the by-election and for the future.
