Harlow Labour Party is pleased to announce the selection of Chris Vince as the candidate for the Little Parndon and Hare Street by-election
The by-election will be held on March 8 and follows the resignation of Jon Clempner.
Allan Jolley was selected to be the candidate for Great Parndon in the local elections to be held on May 3, filling the vacancy created by Chris’ selection.
Chris and Allan were selected by members at a selection meeting held today (Sunday 28 January).
Chris Vince said: “I’m delighted to have been selected to be the Labour candidate for Little Parndon and Hare Street and look forward to meeting with local residents over the coming weeks to introduce myself and to hear about their concerns and ideas for the ward.
“I’m aware that I am stepping into big shoes. Jon was an exceptional councillor and leader and I consider it an honour to be given the opportunity to carry on his work on behalf of local residents.”
Allan Jolley said today: “I’m very happy to have been selected today to be the candidate for Great Parndon. This is a challenging seat for Labour but we have a strong campaign planned and I am looking forward to building on the great start that Chris has made over the past months.”
Chris Vince has twice been a Parliamentary Candidate and also Labour’s Police and Crime Commissioner Candidate where he achieved the most votes of any candidate in Harlow.
Allan Jolley is a longstanding Labour Party member and is the Harlow Branch Secretary of UCATT (Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians). He stood for Sumners and Kingsmoor in the 2016 elections.
