Attic Rahman – Chairman, East Ham Conservative Association

I joined the Conservative Party in 2009 under the leadership of the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon David Cameron MP. His vision of the Conservative Party best represents my core values where hard work pays, aspirations are encouraged and where a strong economy provides a stronger, fairer foundation for us all and the next generation.

In March 2016 I was elected as the Chairman of my local conservative Party Association, East Ham (Newham). Having served the Association over the past three years as a Deputy Chairman, political agent and head of legal compliance, becoming Chairman was a natural progression and a recognition of my commitment to Newham.

As Chairman, my vision and commitment to Newham is for wider, fairer representation where irrespective of your background, race, religion or sexual orientation, we can all play an important part in making Newham a better place to live and work. I want to reach out to the all residents, our youth and to our great religious institutions to come together and build a safer, fairer and more prosperous community, by working together. I am extremely proud of Newham – it is full of hardworking, honest people who strive for a better future. That is why I believe Newham Can Be Better.
