CUCA endorses Jack Drury in final hours of voting

Will Tilbrook 10 March 2017

Cambridge University's Conservative Association (CUCA) sent an email to its members this afternoon with the subject line: "CUCA is clear: Vote Drury", after the association's committee voted to officially endorse the candidate in his bid for CUSU president.

In the email they describe Jack Drury as "a breath of fresh air in student politics" and go on to justify their endorsement.

The email states: "CUCA has so far refrained from any public involvement in the CUSU Presidential race, indeed we have to my knowledge never endorsed a CUSU Presidential Candidate. Jack Drury is different, however, and our committee has unanimously voted to endorse him and his candidature."

"This is not because of his politics, which are irrelevant to whether or not one can do a good job at CUSU, but because he has consistently proved that he is dedicated, organised, talented and competent."

The email from Chairman James Mathieson encourages CUCA members and non-members to cast their vote, before the voting period comes to an end today at 5pm.

This is not the only endorsement Drury has had this week. On Tuesday, Drury published a video on YouTube showing the Master of Gonville and Caius College, Professor Sir Alan Fersht, light-heartedly suggesting his support for Drury's campaign. In the video, Fersht describes him as a “very nice chappy” and "a fantastic organiser".
