Sadiq, Rosena and Marsha all began their political journeys as local authority councillors. Many councillors want nothing more than to represent, support and lead their community. But for others, it is also the start of an exciting journey that can lead all the way to City Hall and the Houses of Parliament.
Wandsworth Labour, which covers Tooting, Battersea and Putney, is looking for people who would like to stand for election in May next year, and that could well be you.
Being a councillor is hugely rewarding. It means you can play an important role in improving your community and the lives of local people. Next May it could also mean you will be part of the team that takes Wandsworth Council from the Tories for the first time in 40 years. Imagine how much better Wandsworth could be with Labour in charge.
We welcome applicants from all walks of life and are especially keen to hear from women, black and minority ethnic members, carers, people with disabilities, LGBT members and younger members.
There is a good description of a councillor’s role in this booklet.
To apply, you need to have been a member of the Labour Party since January 16th 2016 and live in the borough of Wandsworth.
If you’re interested, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you an application form and tell you more about the role. The deadline for submitting an application is September 28.
