Conservative Candidate for Horsham
Jeremy Quin was first elected as the Member of Parliament for the Horsham constituency in May 2015. He was re-elected to serve as Horsham's MP at the general election on 8 June 2017.
In his two years as Member of Parliament for the Horsham Constituency Jeremy has gained a fantastic reputation locally for being hard working and approachable, championing the issues of local people.
Having previously worked as a company adviser, Jeremy will continue to support local businesses and help them continue to prosper as the Government implements its economic plan for Britain.
Only a strong Conservative Government can deliver an economy which works for everyone investing in our vital public services and maximising opportunities for everyone in society.
With a passion for charitable interests in education alongside previous experience as a school governor; Jeremy passionately believes in ensuring every child has a great start in life and has campaigned strongly for fair funding for our local schools.
Our ageing population needs to be provided with the care and support that it rightly expects. Jeremy is very focused on the need to expand our local health provision including primary care and hospital services to meet the needs of our growing population.
Jeremy passionately believes in a sustainable working countryside to be preserved for future generations to enjoy. A huge threat to this and to the quality of life in this area would be a second runway at Gatwick to which Jeremy is adamantly opposed. He campaigned hard on the issue and was delighted by the Government's decision in favour of expanding Heathrow. While Jeremy supports the jobs and economic benefit that Gatwick brings to our area he continues to represent constituents on issues such as aircraft noise
He was born in Aylesbury and is married to Joanna, who is a solicitor. They both knew Horsham and its surrounding villages well before Jeremy was first selected and have enjoyed making their home in the constituency.
The son of a primary school teacher and agricultural merchant (later ordained as a Church of England Vicar) Jeremy attended St Albans School before reading History at Oxford where he was also President of the Oxford Union.
He has always taken a close interest in politics and has been actively involved in the Conservative Party since school. He first fought a parliamentary constituency, Meirionnydd Nant Conwy, in 1997. He then took a conscious decision to progress his career and voluntary interests before standing for parliament again at a later date with more experience to contribute.
However he continued to take an active role in politics as a volunteer – including serving 2010-2013 as Chairman of the Buckingham Constituency Conservative Association: a unique role given that the MP for Buckingham is Speaker of the House of Commons and is not aligned to any political party.
He was selected by the Horsham Conservative Association to stand as the Parliamentary Candidate in the 2015 General Election after Francis Maude announced his decision to stand down and has been re-adopted by local Conservatives as the Party’s candidate for the Horsham Constituency in the 2017 General Election.
