Congratulations to Reg Copley, who has been selected to fight St Laurence ward in the Southend Borough local elections 2015.
Reg, as anyone who is involved in Southend politics will know, is a stalwart of the local community. He is a former Mayor of the town, and he tells me that this will be the twentieth election he has fought. Nobody who has spoken to him can doubt his passion and commitment to Southend.
St Laurence was one of UKIP’s gains last year. It is clearly crying out for a workable alternative to the tired Tory representation which has failed across Southend. Reg, with his wealth of experience, is that alternative.
