Labour confirms local election candidates in Warrington South

Warrington Guardian: Tom Jennings will stand in Grappenhall and Thelwall Tom Jennings will stand in Grappenhall and Thelwall

THE youngest parish councillor in the borough is among the names announced by Labour for next year’s local election.

The Warrington South Labour Group has finalised its list of those standing in the elections, which will take place on May 22.

But Warrington North’s line up remains incomplete follow the selection meeting on November 30.

Following the report into the party published in October, all candidates were selected in front of regional boss Eric Wilson in a one day selection meeting.

But spots remain in Orford and Poulton where women only shortlists were confirmed - but no women candidates put themselves forward.

They are replacing Clr Kelly Simcock, who is standing down in Orford, and Clr Lottie Ladbury.

Nick Bent, the Warrington South Labour parliamentary candidate welcomed the team lined up for the vote next year.

He said: “With David Cameron’s Tories still prioritising tax cuts for millionaires and ignoring the cost of living crisis that affects many families, I hope even more people will back our strong local Labour team.

“Only Labour under Ed Miliband is offering credible and practical support to boost job creation, wages, childcare support and new homes.”

The new candidates are Les Morgan, who is a founder member of St Werburgh’s Community Centre, who will be standing in Latchford West.

Former borough councillor Karen Mundry will be fighting for a place back at the Town Hall in the Whittle Hall ward.

The youngest parish councillor - 19-year-old Tom Jennings, will stand in Grappenhall and Thelwall. The youth worker was previously a Member of Youth Parliament for Warrington South.

Penketh Parish councillor Andy Heaver will be contesting for the seat in Great Sankey North. He is a passionate advocate for disabled people’s rights and the NHS.

Lymm Labour Party chairman Sean Chapman will be standing in the ward and is a former government officer in St Helens where he supported young homeless people.

And completing the new line up is 31-year-old Andy Davidson who volunteers and is standing in Appleton.

There are no elections in 2014 in Stockton Heath or Hatton, Stretton and Walton wards.

I assume this is the same Tom Jennings who , when Labour were in opposition, caused disruption at a council meeting by attempting to make a speech, which, as he was an unelected member of the public was against the constitution of the council.

He was egged on by some of the very same hypocritical members of the current Labour Junta who imposed not constitutional rules but rather illegally used their own party rules against one of their own members.

I would say that I hope he has learnt how to conduct himself - but it doesn't really matter as long as he does and says what O'Neill demands and avoids any Thought Crime - preferably avoiding thinking at all.
