Welcome to the Gravesham Labour Party and our website.
A message from our 2019 General Election Candidate Cllr Dr Lauren Sullivan.
‘Dear Residents of Gravesham – thank you to those of you that supported me and Labour in the General Election as the Labour Parliamentary Candidate. Alas, it was not to be this time but I thank you all for the positive and kind way I was received and for the many messages of encouragement and support.
I would like to give thanks to the members of the party that campaigned, my campaign team including and especially John Burden my agent, Tony Rana the campaign coordinator, the whole campaign team and Executive Committee. Many of them worked day in day out across each hour of the campaign to do the very best for Labour in Gravesham and we and I owe them so much for their efforts. Thank you also to the Officers of Gravesham Borough Council for running such a smooth election.
After a period of reflection and learning, Labour will come back stronger from this as a party nationally. Locally, we shall build on our local successes, delivering on the exciting manifesto as the Administration on Gravesham Borough Council showing that Labour can deliver for local people when Labour is in control.
My congratulations to Adam and the Conservatives on their result in Gravesham and we look forward to working together where we can and holding the Tories to account ensuring your promises are met and that Gravesham is not harmed by any as you would expect but, as always, this will be done in a collegiate and respectful way.
Our democracy is built on a foundation that our political dialogue needs to be respectful of other people’s views and issues while ensuring that we challenge, in a robust but respectful way, any misconceptions that exist and put forward positive visions for our town, our Borough and our community. I am proud of the positive way the parties locally in Gravesham ran campaigns ensuring it was about issues and a choice of a vision for the future and I hope that we all as a country ensure that we keep our political dialogue honest and respectful.
I hope that all of Gravesham have a restful Christmas and have a very happy New Year in 2020 and I look forward to being out on the campaign trail again in the New Year engaging with local residents in the ward and division I am proud to serve and call home, as it is only by listening to local people can we build a Gravesham to be proud of.
