This weekend members of Sittingbourne and Sheppey Constituency Labour Party met, to hear from, and vote for who they wanted to be our parliamentary candidate to face Gordon Henderson in 2015, completing a lengthy, fair and open selection process. Members have had several weeks to speak to candidates and this weekend put questions to candidates at hustings in both Sheerness and Sittingbourne.
Guy Nicholson, who has been working hard with us for several years, came out on top. After thanking members for choosing him, and thanking CLP Secretary Margaret Cooper for doing an excellent job as Proceedures Secretary, Guy said today is the start of the campaign to defeat Gordon Henderson and get Sittingbourne & Sheppey an MP in Parliament who will deliver.
Guy has been a Hackney Councillor for several years and holds a cabinet portfolio; he has been heavily involved with the local party and its campaigning for several years.
