Speaking after the meeting, Harlow Labour Party Chair, Charlie Cochrane said; “This is a really exciting group of candidates and it’s particularly pleasing to see so many of our new, younger members being selected.
“Our youngest candidate is 21 and it’s testament to the brilliant work of Harlow Young Labour in bringing so many new members to the Party, that four of our candidates are drawn from our Young Labour group. Their energy and enthusiasm compliments the experience of our many standing Councillors who have also been re-selected. I am confident that together this group will run a very strong campaign for Labour in Harlow.
“Harlow Council, under Labour’s control, is making a real difference to people’s lives – from getting the first Council housing built in the town for a generation to investing in an additional three Community Safety Officers to help compensate for Tory cuts to the police service.
“It’s imperative that we maintain control of the Council at next year’s election and to that end, we will be out meeting with residents every week between now and May – listening to their concerns and sharing our plans for the future of their Town.”
