I am extraordinarily proud and delighted to be able to announce that on 14 October 2017, Labour Party members in Kursaal ward voted to select me as their candidate for Kursaal ward, in the 2018 Southend-on-Sea local elections.
This is a guest post, written by Helen McDonald, Southend Labour’s candidate for Kursaal ward at the 2016 local elections. As such, the views and opinions expressed may differ radically from your blogger’s own. Some of them may even make sense…
For the past few weekends I’ve been knocking on the doors of Kursaal and, despite the miserable weather on more than one occasion, the residents have proved themselves to be a very welcoming bunch. The birthday cake was a particularly appreciated pick-me-up as was finding a fellow Dolly Parton fan!
Of course, it’s The Big Three that are causing the most upset (that’s parking, dog mess and litter for the uninitiated).
