Labour Group Leader, Richard Watts, introduces Islington Labour's candidates for the 2014 local elections -
"I'm delighted to introduce our Islington Labour team for 2014. Our candidates are all local residents who want to continue the fight to make Islington a fairer place. Almost 40% of our candidates are women. 14 are from black and minority ethnic backgrounds; and 7 are aged under 30. Islington Labour's candidates truly reflect our local communities.
"Since taking control of the Council in 2010, Islington Labour has transformed services and fought for fairness every step of the way. From introducing free school meals for all primary school children, to ensuring all of our staff are paid at least the London Living Wage - Islington Labour has made a real difference.
"After speaking with over 20,000 local residents, we have listened to what your priorities are. If we are re-elected, we will tackle jobs, housing and the cost of living - because those are the things that matter to Islington residents and matter to us. This is because Islington Labour will always be on your side.
"Please scroll down the page and find out who your Islington Labour candidates are."
