Cllr Ben Bradley MP to speak at D2N2 AGM

D2N2 are delighted to announce that Cllr Ben Bradley MP, Member of Parliament for Mansfield and Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council will be a guest speaker at our forthcoming AGM on 24 November.

Born in Ripley, Derbyshire, Ben graduated with a first-class honours degree in Politics from Nottingham Trent University in 2013 following a stint of being a landscape gardener and administrator. Following this, he took the role of Campaign Manager for Mark Spencer, the Member of Parliament for Sherwood.

Ben became Member of Parliament for Mansfield in the snap General Election in June 2017. He was the first Conservative to be elected in Mansfield since the constituency’s creation in 1858, unseating the previous incumbent of 30 years.

In early 2018, Ben was appointed as Vice Chairman of the Conservative Party, with responsibility for youth engagement. Following on from this appointment, in March Ben re-launched the ‘Young Conservatives’ organisation, the national youth wing of the Conservative Party. He resigned from this role in July 2018 in order to be able to speak out for his constituents on Brexit.

In 2019, Ben was re-elected as the MP for Mansfield with a 16’306 majority, the largest Conservative increase in the Country. Ben has sat on both the Women and Equalities Select Committee and Education Select Committee in Parliament.

In May 2021, Ben was elected Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council.


D2N2’s Annual General Meeting and Annual Conference will take place o on Wednesday 24 November 2021 from 12pm -2pm at the De Vere Jubilee Conference Centre. The event is open to members of the public.
