MEMBERS of the public are invited to hear Penny Mordaunt talk about her vision of Portsmouth’s future at a Southsea school today.
The Portsmouth North MP is a guest of St John’s College’s politics society.
Ms Mordaunt, who has lived in Portsmouth since she was two, developed an interest in politics when working in the hospitals and orphanages of post-revolutionary Romania in her late teens.
She has been head of broadcasting at Conservative Central Office and was head of foreign press for George W Bush’s 2000 election campaign. Outside politics Ms Mordaunt has worked in the private, public and voluntary sectors.
Richard Polson, society chairman, said: ‘We hope Penny’s visit will give a personal insight not only into the direction in which she wishes Portsmouth to head, but also into her views on the future of the Conservative Party – which in recent weeks has aroused controversy with the revival of the European debate.’
This event at 6pm is free.
