Labour Party candidates were determined and resolute, Lynn News letters

By Lynn News Reporter

Rest assured it was not a case of “not bothering.”Henry acknowledged the challenges faced by people turning up unannounced on the doorstep, asking for their vote. This task has been made even more challenging by the local Tories being seen to waste millions of pounds on loans that won’t be repaid, pontoons that aren’t used and a statue which brings no discernible benefit to the lives of local residents.

That and the failure of his government to secure a Brexit deal have left local people angry and left ordinary Labour Party members uncertain about how to respond. Those candidates we did secure were committed, determined and resolute in their aim to be the very best councillor they could be.

Having attended full council meetings as an observer and seen how little work my previous councillor put it and the insult he made in public to me, our local party made sure each of our candidates were committed to the role and had the right disposition and attitude.

We were disappointed that we couldn’t get candidates for every ward but we understood many of the reasons that members had for not standing; going to university in a different town was another reason.

Our first party surgery is being held at 26 St James Street on Saturday, June 8, at noon and we look forward to seeing any constituents who needs assistance.
