South Lakes Labour’s message to voters this May

PRESS RELEASE 20 APRIL 2021 (release immediate)

Ahead of the local elections on 6th May, in a message to South Lakeland voters, Chair of Westmorland and Lonsdale Labour Party, Paul Braithwaite said: 
‘Coming out of COVID, Labour has a plan for recovery and a team of candidates for the district and county council by-elections who are committed to working hard for a fairer future for their local communities.’

Ben Barker, Labour candidate for the Grange ward of South Lakeland District Council said:
‘I’m permanently outraged about funding cuts to council services and schools. If elected, I will push for more affordable housing for local families, business rates reform, and a strengthened and robust NHS with faster access to mental health care. I also support the restoration of the Lido – it will be a big boost to the local economy.’

On the election of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Cumbria, Mr. Braithwaite commented:
‘This contest is a two-horse race between the Conservatives and Labour. Liberal Democrats have never won a PCC election here. Since 2012, Conservative PCCs have presided over cuts to the police workforce in Cumbria. The only alternative is to vote for Labour’s Barbara Cannon, for safer communities and a say in your local policing priorities.’
