My name is Tom Hunt and I am the Conservative prospective parliamentary candidate for Ipswich. I was deeply honoured to be selected by local members to be the candidate and my aim between now and the next general election is to win the confidence of the people in Ipswich to be their next Conservative Member of Parliament.
I was born and raised in Ely, Cambridgeshire, before attending University in Manchester and then Oxford. After a spell living in London, I moved back to Cambridgeshire fourteen months ago. My mother has lived in Suffolk for many years and I truly see myself as a product of East Anglia. I know Ipswich well and will be living in Ipswich by Christmas. My aim is to live and breathe the town and to be fully accessible as a prospective parliamentary candidate.

I currently work as the Chief of Staff to the newly elected Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, Mayor James Palmer. This role involved me working closely with both local and national government to bring about significant improvements to infrastructure and housing. I feel strongly that the knowledge and the skill set that I’ve acquired through this role makes me well placed to tackle many of the issues of concern for Ipswich residents.
During my campaign I will focus on five key priorities that I believe will improve the lives of residents, make our town thrive for business and leisure and provide opportunities for Ipswich’s younger generation.
- Opportunities for young people
- A Town centre to be proud of
- Health services
