Member of Parliament - York Outer
Before being elected as York Outer’s Member of Parliament in May 2010, Julian Sturdy was a working farmer in York where he lives with his wife Victoria and two children, George and Florence.
Julian, a Yorkshireman born and bred, has a tendency to call a spade a spade whilst gaining a proven reputation for getting things done. As an effective local campaigner he has been fighting to protect our Green Belt, support small and medium-sized businesses, improve our local transport network and tackle York’s NHS funding problems. Julian has always believed that local communities should be at the heart of society and he remains passionate about keeping them there.
“As someone who has grown up and worked in the area all my life, being local helps me to understand the issues and challenges that people have in York and the surrounding villages. I care passionately about our local community because this is my local community, and the issues that affect you affect me and my family.”
