Just a few hours left to vote in this important General Election. Please cast your vote for the society you wish your family to live in and we hope you...

We would like to say thank you to the people of Gravesham for their support in the recent local elections for Kent County Council and the two Gravesham Borough Council By-Elections.

We are delighted that Tan Dhesi and Lauren Sullivan were elected to the Kent County Council for the Northfleet and Gravesend West Division and that Shane Mochrie-Cox was re-elected to represent the Coldharbour Ward on Gravesham Borough Council. 

Lauren was also elected the Deputy Leader of the Kent County Council Labour Group with Tan as Vice-Chair.

We would like to pay tribute to Colin Caller who over many years represented Gravesend East on Kent County Council who along with Lyn Milner was unsuccessful in Gravesend East along with Doug Christie in Gravesham Rural and Elizabeth Mulheran in Painters Ash Ward for Gravesham Borough Council. Thank you all for your hard work and service.

Colin and Lyn still represent you as Councillors for the Westcourt and Riverside Wards respectively on Gravesham Borough Council.

Thank you to the party members and volunteers who helped out in many different ways throughout the election.

Most of all thank you to the community of Gravesham who supported Labour in this election. Your representatives will work hard for the whole community. Please do not hesitate to contact them should you have any issues in your community they can help with.

"I'm delighted to have been selected as the Parliamentary Candidate for Gravesham!  I am a Labour Parish Councillor, a Qualified teacher, a Mum, an Autism Consultant and Chair of the proposed National Autistic Society Branch for Dartford, Gravesend, Swanley. 

I’m involved in the community helping to organise community events, often to support autism families. I attend business networking and an All Party Parliamentary Group for autism discussing changes and feeding back into government policy. Raising autism awareness is something I am passionate about, however, there are many people with many challenges. I am interested in the concerns of all the community. 

Having previously volunteered in one of the local food banks and winter shelter for homeless rough sleepers, I am very aware of the damaging effects that the cuts are having on some of the most vulnerable in society. As a former teacher I understand how schools are struggling in the current climate and the impact that this is having on the children’s education and on staff morale. As a local councillor and having been Vice-Chair (membership) in Dartford CLP, I know that we all work incredibly hard standing up for people and families against this current conservative administration. I believe that we can show a real alternative to austerity, a poorly funded NHS and crumbling education system and can offer a real alternative for our community. I am ready to make decisions that could create a better future for Gravesham, for everyone."
