Name: James Wharton
Candidate for: Stockton South
James is a solicitor, working in Stockton and Darlington and practicing Company law. He lives in Eaglescliffe and was brought up and went to secondary school locally.
He read law at Durham University and on graduating went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in York before training to be a solicitor with a regional firm, working in Newcastle, Durham and Darlington.
James has campaigned and worked across Stockton South, from fighting for a new school in Ingleby Barwick, to playing a part in the campaign to save Parkview care home in Thornaby, the campaign to protect Preston Park from Labour's plans for development and preventing the relocation of Ian Ramsey School. He believes politics is changing and anyone who wants to represent an area as its MP "should be here all year round, not just at election time".
In the 2005 local elections he stood as the Conservative Candidate in Bishopsgarth and Elm Tree Ward in Stockton, as well as working to support other Conservative Candidates across the Borough and playing a key role in the Campaign Team of James Gaddas, the 2005 Conservative Parliamentary Candidate.
