Labour's new prospective parliamentary candidate for South Thanet

All South Thanet Labour Party members were able to take part in a hustings and vote today held at the Baptist Church in Queen's Road in Broadstairs.   This provided the hundreds of members present with the opportunity to hear from four candidates and have their questions put to them.

After a long list of 6 candidates eventually became 4, today was the day to finally select the candidate.  In any open competition like this, with the privilege and responsibility of becoming the parliamentary candidate and, ultimately, an MP, it is a pleasure to see high quality candidates putting themselves forward and the local party was lucky to have had such an excellent range of candidates from which to select.

The four candidates up for election were:

Rod Abouharb

Raushan Ara

Karen Constantine

Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt

Using the preferential system of voting, members numbered the candidates with the eventual winner being Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt.

Committed to the Labour leadership, the Party's manifesto and a new, grassroots politics, Rebecca has already gathered together a strong and diverse team ready to work in South Thanet.  Listening to the people of South Thanet is a key mission, said Rebecca, and we need to work hard at demonstrating that Labour has the policies, the capabilities and the passion to make a real difference to lives in Thanet.

Labour councillors slam Thanet District Council.

Echoing the thoughts of many residents,  councillors are appalled by the state of public areas. Thanet has become marred by litter, poor refuse collections and dog fouling. 

At a meeting of the Council’s Corporate Performance Review Working Party last week the figures show a decline in the state of our streets, a steep rise in homelessness, and the rates at which issues such as homelessness are dealt with. 

Speaking for the Labour group Cllr Karen Constantine said "It's time TDC focused on the key issues affecting local people on a day to day basis and stopped wrangling about party splits, party leadership and who dreams of a failed airport most. Get back to basics TDC"!
