Nancy Platts has been elected Chair of Brighton, Hove and District Labour Party at a meeting attended by hundreds of local members. The local Labour Party has a membership of over 2,000 and covers the area from Portslade to Peacehaven and everywhere in between.
Nancy Platts said:
I am very honoured to be elected by the local Party to lead our fast growing membership. I am determined to remain a strong voice for the thousands of people who voted for a Labour government that would have tackled the rising culture of low pay and job insecurity that is leaving people using food banks and sleeping on our streets. We have achieved a position of strength by taking control of the Council and even from opposition nationally we can still make a difference to people’s lives and be a positive advocate for change within our communities.
Nancy Platts takes over from Mel Davies, who stood down as Chair after serving a two-year term
I want to thank the outgoing Chair and Exec for their hard work throughout a very busy election period and I am personally very appreciative of their support.
