Meet Labour's candidates for SLDC elections, May 3rd, 2018

 

Meet our candidates for SLDC

 

1918 was a milestone in the history of women, for the first time many women were able to vote. It was a huge step forward and the culmination of decades of campaigning and activism. To commemorate this historic moment, South Lakes Labour have put together a small display focusing on some of the many local suffragettes and suffragists.  The display is in Kendal Library from today until 20th May.   If you are in Kendal do pop in and have a look and meet Mary our Suffragette, and find out why she is holding a toothbrush! (No clues, you'll have to go find out for yourself!)

Labour candidates for Kendal Town Council

Taking place on May 3rd, the same day as the district council elections, electors in Kendal will be able to vote for councillors for Kendal Town Council. 

The town council is the third, or lowest, tier of local government for Kendal. It has responsibility for providing allotments, it manages initiatives such as Mint Clean and Kendal in Bloom, and makes grants to a range of charitable, community and festival projects each year. 

There are 28 town councillors across 14 town wards, currently every seat on Kendal Town Council is occupied by a Lib Dem councillor.  We intend to change that!

Our candidates for the Kendal Town Council wards are:
