LABOUR’S ELECTION TEAM IN THETFORD REVEALED
Tuesday 4th April 2023
A strong and skilled team has been revealed to help unlock Thetford’s potential, ahead of local elections due to take place on Thursday the 4th of May.
The local Labour Party are fielding 15 candidates for Thetford Town Council, with a further 10 standing for Breckland District Council seats covering the town and surrounding areas.
The group does include experienced and returning candidates but the majority have never stood for elected office before, pledging to bring bold new ideas to move Thetford forward.
The Labour slate includes an ex-fireman, small business owner, former NHS worker, postman, Union rep and a doctor. In addition, there is a former headteacher, a special educational needs expert and a volunteer with the Citizens Advice Bureau as well as someone who spent twelve years in the Merchant Navy,
Six of the candidates are aged under 40 and all live within Thetford.
Terry Jermy, Leader of Breckland Labour Group said: “The range of skills and life experiences amongst these candidates is fantastic. This is a team that could really take Thetford in the right direction. I am so proud of them all for putting themselves forward. They are hard-working, dedicated and want to do their best for the local community. All are standing in support of our adopted manifesto, which seeks to unlock Thetford’s potential.”
