Meet Your Local Councillors
Councillors are elected to the local council to represent the residents in the ward and their local community. Councillors are expected to be active in their local community and act as the voice of their constituents, raising any local concerns within the Council on a range of matters related to the work of the council. That could be anything from the quality of local parks, to social services for the elderly, to bin collections and road safety.
Councillors often run regular surgeries in their wards, and spend time talking to local residents about the role politics can play in their lives. Labour Councillors in particular are Labour’s representatives in local communities, and ensure that councils provide highest quality public services they can, and implement Labour values into their work every single day.
