Islington Labour Council Candidates

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.

I agree I live in Highbury East and I never received either any leaflet with their policies or achievements. Couldn’t they just write 4 or 5 lines for each local Councillor with their previous roles and what they are campaigning for and add a link to their pictures? Or is it that the seats are so safe that they don’t bother campaigning and canvassing any more in Highbury? It’s fine to add links to the Labour MPs in Islington, but this is the part of the site for Islington Labour Council Candidates and you get only a picture?!? Time to rethink my vote. Teresa

Hi, I will be voting tomorrow in Clerkenwell Ward but I have been unable to consult/access any programs so far. I am a French student living in London, and I would be ready to give my vote to left-wing candidates, but the Labour party hasn’t sent any documents whatsoever detailing the pledges of each candidate, and I do not have time to contact them individually. It is maybe just me who is still unfamiliar with the local system, but I think you should really consider improving the way you approach voters. No matter the motivations of each candidate, when I see this web page and the lack of communication, I think it’s no wonder people do not care anymore about voting! Alexis
