Mr Broadbent attended Northstead and Friarage County Modern Schools, before being taken on as an apprentice coach-builder with Plaxtons. Married with three grown up children, Eric has been a local councillor for over 20 years and has previously served as Mayor of Scarborough.
He is currently Borough Councillor for Scarborough Central Ward, County Councillor for Northstead Division and leader of the Labour group on North Yorkshire County Council.
Commenting Mr Broadbent said:
“I am honoured to be selected as the Labour candidate for Scarborough and Whitby for the General Election.
My commitment to the area and experience serving as Mayor, Borough Councillor and County Councillor mean I am ideally placed to serve as a Member of Parliament.
I’ve been involved with the Trade Union movement all of my working life, and I’m not ready to give up the fight
Scarborough and Whitby deserves a local MP who will stand up for the many, not just a few.”
