I am delighted to be able announce that the Labour Party in Leigh ward have selected Dr Chris McGurk as the party candidate for the local elections in May.
Chris, pictured above campaigning in Leigh with Labour activist Dr Zita Subasinghe, is someone who has impressed me with his passion, dedication and clear and articulate campaigning style. In this blogger’s view, the people of Leigh would be lucky to have him as their councillor after May, and I urge them to ditch the do-nothing local Liberal Democrats and vote for him.
Chris is also a doctor, working in the local area, and has an on-the-ground view of the National Health Service. In Southend, where out hospital is in black alert and A&E provision has been left overstretched by the top-down reorganisation which David Cameron promised he wouldn’t make, he offers a perspective and a detailed knowledge on a subject which matters to every voter, in Leigh and beyond.
Welcome to the campaign Chris!
