Adrian has Muscular Atrophy and uses an electric wheelchair. He has a carer but help in campaigning comes from friends and party activists. Adrian was the Conservative Party candidate for Islington North, is standing as a Council candidate in Kensington & Chelsea next May and has been seeking selection for a Parliamentary seat in the next General Election.
In Adrian’s view, the key to seeking election is communication with those selecting candidates and the electorate. While physical disability clearly gets in the way and makes some means of doing so impractical there’s always a way; there’s no reason why a disabled candidate can’t find effective ways of talking to people and getting a message across and seeking election is a very interesting and rewarding experience.
