We are excited to be able to announce that our new parliamentary candidate is none other than councillor Vince Maple. Vince has an outstanding background as leader of the Medway Labour group and has been a dedicated, local councillor in Medway since 2007.
We learned about this today at the Medway May Day event organised by the Medway TUC as he made an address to a gathered crowd of supporters of the NHS.
The other two candidates announced in the Medway area today are Teresa Murray for Rochester and Strood and Andy Stamp for Gillingham and Rainham.
We ask all of our members and supporters to give it your all for our candidates, and make this general election a success for Labour in Medway and the surrounding areas!
