St Albans Labour Party has welcomed the opportunity to fight a general election on June 8th and has already begun work, with teams from the party canvassing across the parliamentary constituency just hours after the Prime Minister made her announcement in Downing Street.
The Alma Road based party, who came second in 2015 and held the Parliamentary seat from 1997-2005 has been on a general election footing for months and will move swiftly to formally select its candidate in days.
St Albans Labour Party has more than doubled in size since 2015, with more than 1000 members locally.
Cllr Roma Mills, Leader of St Albans District Labour Group said:
“St Albans Labour Party welcomes the chance to oust an MP who has let down St Albans and a government which has let down the country by pursuing an approach to Brexit that will damage St Albans and the country. Their policies have failed to address a crisis in our local NHS and care services and a growing crisis in school funding.
St Albans Labour Party will announce its candidate in the coming days, will fight this election and the county council elections with relish, and stand up for the values of the majority of people in St Albans”.
