West Ham CLP fundraiser with Richard Burgon MP Thursday 10 May
Many, many thanks to all the West Ham CLP members who came out to get all sixty of our Labour councillors elected in Newham last Thursday as well as our Mayoral candidate Rokhsana Fiaz who was elected with 73.4% of the vote.
As for those members who also campaigned in nearby marginal wards, the Labour party can be proud that we achieved the best local election results in London since 1971, as well as making gains nationwide.
Shadow Justice Secretary, Richard Burgon MP, will be joining us to reflect on the outcome of the elections, locally and nationally. Richard is one of the best speakers on the Labour front bench and we are delighted he is visiting the CLP.
PS - Crowd-funding for a second conference delegatecloses tomorrow! West Ham CLP agreed that if we can crowd-fund the money, we will send a second delegate to Labour party conference. If you want to donate but haven't yet, please follow this link to the crowd-funding site where you can pledge an amount to support this project. If sufficient funds are raised the delegate will be elected at the General Committee meeting on Thursday 24th May. The crowd-funding concludes on Thursday 10th May.
