Joanne is standing for the Labour Party National Executive Committee (NEC). Click here for a copy of her request for nominations. CLP's have until the 30 March 2012 to make nominations.Party members will receive ballot papers in June.
Joanne is the type of Labour Party member who you will bump into campaigning in various by elections in the midst of winter and Chairing effectively those difficult regional and national meetings where some folk prefer the traditional Party bunfight rather than reasoned debate.
In September 2010 I posted here on Joanne's (successful) attempt to be elected to the Labour Party National Policy Forum. This post is the second highest page view "hit" ever on this blog (google stats).
