LABOUR COUNCILLOR

Merry Hill Branch has one elected councillor. Traditionally a marginal ward, Alan has worked extremely hard to be elected first in 2012 and again in 2016 as Merry Hill's first Labour councillor. Subsequent elections are increased majorities proving that Labour is electable in marginal areas with intelligent campaigning and hardworking councillors.

This is a ward where Labour is looking for a great local activist to stand as candidates in the coming years.
