Labour selects candidate for Council by-election in West Harrow

labour_roseHarrow Labour Party is delighted to announce that local resident Christine Robson, of Hillside Crescent, Harrow, will be standing as the Labour candidate in the forthcoming West Harrow by-election.

Ms Robson, who works for the NHS, has lived in Harrow since 1980. Her son Joshua was a pupil at Vaughan Primary School and then went on to study at Whitmore High. Polling day is Thursday 21st February 2013 and Polling Stations will be open from 7am to 10pm.

Christine Robson said: “I am honoured to have been chosen to represent Labour in this by-election and look forward to campaigning hard on the issues that matter most to fellow local residents. I know that many people in West Harrow are finding their family budgets ever more squeezed as wages aren’t going up but fare prices and energy bills have shot up.”

Here in Harrow we’ve seen the recent cuts to the police resulting in 20% fewer officers on our streets – which is so very damaging to our community. So in the next few weeks, I will be working hard to send a message to the Tory-led Government that now is not the right time to be cutting police on our streets.”

Gareth Thomas MP said: “I am delighted that Christine has been selected to be the candidate for the West Harrow by-election. Christine has lived in Harrow for 33 years and would be an excellent representative for Harrow residents.”

Council Leader Cllr Thaya Idaikkadar said: “I am proud that the party has selected such a competent and experienced candidate for West Harrow. I look forward to working with Christine in the future.”
