Fair Play in the local elections
Labour’s candidates in May’s local elections have signed a Fair Play pledge to campaign respectfully and safely.
Stroud Constituency Labour Party (CLP) has announced a list of 35 candidates. There are 15 women and 20 men standing in the district council elections on May 6.
The group, which includes students, charity workers, small business owners and freelance consultants, community leaders, shopkeepers and even an Instagram influencer, comes from right across the district and includes first-time candidates alongside experienced councillors.
“During the pandemic, many of us have been volunteering in our communities and if elected, we’ll continue that work by helping to deliver Labour’s plan for recovery to ensure no one is left behind, and our communities will be safe and decent places to live.
“We have signed the Fair Play Pledge because we believe, as politicians, we should be leading by example.”
The Fair Pay Pledge
This pledge commits candidates to campaign openly and respectfully, to uphold financial laws, to respect privacy and to champion defending and enhancing our democracy if elected.
