Today I created a group of Facebook to seek people’s support to elect Garry and I to the two council seats in Old Glossop Ward which we will be campaigning for in the Borough Election in May 2011, this can be access here
Today at a meeting of Glossopdale Labour Party I, along with Garry Parvin, was selected to stand as the Labour Candidate for the Old Glossop Ward of High Peak Borough election in May next year.
The process of being named one of the two final candidates involved being selected by the local Glossopdale Party and the High Peak Party as a whole, through a series of interviews and votes.
I’m very grateful to Glossopdale Labour members for selecting me and very excited to get campaigning to help minimise the effects of cuts on essential service for the people of Old Glossop. Both Garry and I feel it is about time someone spoke up in Old Glossop against the poor decisions of the Conservative controlled Borough Council (and County Council).
